Join us for a enchanting, intimate afternoon of storytelling by and discussion with the great civil rights activist and oral historian of Chicago’s South Side Bronzeville neighborhood, Timuel D. Black, who has lived in the area for nine decades and known just about everyone there. Prof. Black’s memoirs, Sacred Ground, will provide the point of departure for his wonderful tales of life on the South Side, when Bronzeville rivaled Harlem as the black cultural capital of the U.S. His memories of his encounters with Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Billy Holiday, A. Phillip Randolph, Martin Luther King, Jr., Harold Washington, Studs Terkel, and so many others are truly unforgettable.

TSBERL 15S1 Berlin: The Capital of the 20th Century Cary Nathenson Spring 2015
Berlin: The Capital of the 20th Century (TSBERL)

Berlin Plaza, pedestrians and tourists

Travel Study Trip Information

Credit: None
 

Berlin was the stage upon which the drama of the turbulent 20th century played out. In the 1920s, Berlin defined what it meant to be modern: it was the intellectual fulcrum of a liberal republic and a glamorous café society. But that republic was unstable, and soon a fascist government destroyed this atmosphere of tolerance and many of the great works of art and literature created by its talented freethinkers. After 1945, the bombed out city became a frontline of the Cold War, but with the fall of the Wall in 1989, Berlin began a new era as a center of creativity. Berlin’s fascinating and turbulent past make it the perfect place to study what 20th century modernity means, but the city’s recent stunning transformations make it the most interesting city in Europe today. Join us for a cultural, literary journey through the many layers of this great metropolis.

We will explore Berlin’s cultural landscape, one that has inspired some of Europe’s greatest minds from the Enlightenment to the present. Our focus will be on the culture and history of modern (and modernist) Berlin. We will walk on the “wild side” of Berlin as described by Christopher Isherwood in Goodbye to Berlin (basis for the movie, Cabaret), explore the revolutionary theater of Bertolt Brecht, and stroll the streets of the Weimar Republic through the essays of Joseph Roth and Alfred Döblin’s modernist classic, Berlin Alexanderplatz. We will trace the history of Jewish Berlin, its destruction by the Nazis, and surprising revitalization in this vibrant, multicultural city. Together, we will also discover the cultural legacy of 40 years of division between East and West Berlin, a history that is still palpable even today.

Berlin is not your typical European tourist destination, but this is not your typical tour. In keeping with the University of Chicago’s tradition of inquiry, you will be a student as much as a tourist in Berlin, reading, learning, discussing, but also enjoying the sights, sounds, and tastes of this unique European city. The study-tour consists of a eight-night stay in Berlin with presentations, guided walks, select cultural performances, visits to literary and cultural sites, and free time to explore on your own.

In order to experience the city “at ground level” and authentically, we will take full advantage of Berlin’s extensive and convenient public transportation network. Please be prepared for a fair amount of walking and fresh air! Not all sites or transit stations are fully accessible, so this tour is not appropriate for people with mobility restrictions. Participants should be prepared to walk the equivalent of approximately two-four miles per day over several hours.

PMHPEC 15S1 Project Management: Idea to Completion (Open) Joe D’Mello Spring 2015
Project Management: Idea to Completion (Open) (PMHPEC)

Instructional level – introductory (open enrollment)

This course provides a brisk high-level overview of the project management discipline and the PMI framework. It introduces the basic knowledge, insights, skills, and techniques that are required to steer projects toward their desired outcomes while also ensuring that they create value for the organizations that sponsor and execute them.

This is an introductory seminar open to all. It is highly recommended for individuals who wish to refresh their basic skills and become familiar with PMI terms and concepts before participating in the Project Management Strategy Program. Some certificate applicants may be asked to take this class before beginning required courses. All coursework is completed in class. No papers are required.

Learning objectives:

The overarching objective of this course is to provide you with a solid PM foundation which facilitates the acquisition of future PM training and skills; and one which you can readily translate into real world approaches and tactics for managing work-related projects.

Instructional format:

This course is offered onsite.

While conceptual and theoretical underpinnings and principles are covered for the sake of academic rigor, a great deal of emphasis is placed on discussion and awareness of the real-world issues and complexities that can militate against the blind application of these principles. Hence, we will continually emphasize how contextual and situational considerations should drive the practice of project management, so that it does not become a one-size-fits-all approach.

Another objective of the course is to enable you to leverage the team assignments to acquire a working knowledge of the skills and principles presented in the lectures and discussions, so you can gain a keen appreciation of the use and practice of PM in the work place. After the course, you should be able to take the “building blocks” of project management (the PMI process group-knowledge area framework and its encompassing tools and techniques) and adapt and assemble them in order to manage a specific project or set of related projects.

Notes: Breakfast, networking lunch and all materials included in tuition.

This course does not fulfill any elective requirements for either the Project Management Strategy Certificate or the Advanced PM Certificate.  This is a stand-alone course and you may be required to take it prior to beginning a certificate series.

Prerequisite(s):

Participants must have two years of professional experience. This course is highly interactive and involves group work. Strong English skills are required. Please contact Klocke1@uchicago.edu if you have questions about whether this class is right for you.
