In keeping with precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the start date for the spring-quarter Community Classes has been revised, and more classes may be canceled as we have more information about the spread of the virus.
Community Classes are free and meet at Gutenberg College from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on the Wednesdays listed below. These classes are recorded and available to listen to by signing up through Gutenberg’s Patreon page.
Spring quarter’s topic: “Contemporary Conversations, Part 3.”
As a Great Books college, Gutenberg focuses on books that have been part of the “Great Conversation”—that is, books that have influenced Western culture. Many of these books were written hundreds or even thousands of years ago. This year in our Community Classes, however, we will discuss contemporary books that have provoked conversation and reflection. Join the conversation as our speakers present and interact with the arguments of these thoughtful works.
|May 13||Colin Stetter||Cormac McCarthy and the Death of Meaning|
|May 27||Chris Alderman||TBA: April winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction|
Spring quarter classes begin April 29.
At Gutenberg, we hold two simultaneous convictions about truth seeking. First, freedom of inquiry is critical, and second, an authentic pursuit will lead toward God and Truth. In keeping with these convictions, community classes are intended to be a forum for exploration. They may or may not represent the beliefs and positions of Gutenberg College but are designed to explore topics of significance for our lives.
