20/20 Vision: First Day of Class

Are you signed up for Winter Studies yet?Maybe a sneak peek at the first class will persuade you to join us. The lecture is entitled "Visualizing Colonial Identity" but don't let that intimidate you. 
As the story of the Massachusetts Bay Colony unfolds you'll hear about hairstyles that Puritan ministers condemned for "inciting lust" and the clever ways the colonists found to smuggle lace from Venice. You'll get a teenager's view of the Boston Massacre and learn how a failed brewery lead to the start of the American Revolution. Plus, in a small tribute Valentine's Day, we'll take time to appreciate Ann Bradstreet's 1678 poem "To My Dear and Loving Husband." And that's just the first hour.
