By Prof. David Peritz
Minerva has been dormant for the fall of 2020 as David shifted his focus to his regular teaching duties at Sarah Lawrence and also offered an online course on “Urgent Issues, Extraordinary Politics: National Elections at a Time of Intersecting Crises and National Polarization” via the Fromm Institute at the University of San Francisco.
With the national elections now behind us but the coronavirus still very much at large, we will resume courses in January of 2021, looking to continue our focus on the urgent political issues facing American and world citizens today, as well as examining the larger social, economic, cultural and technological contexts that allow for a deeper understanding of these issues.
But as we enter the new year, we will also look to expand our offerings, bringing in new instructors to cover a broader range of subjects, and also offering a weekly lecture on contemporaneous political developments.
