Chesapeake Forum is pleased to announce that course descriptions for the Winter/Spring 2021 session are now available at Online Class Registration begins Tuesday, January 5th.
The curriculum includes diverse topics such as Chesapeake Bay ecology, birding, history of the Eastern Shore, literature, anthropology, artificial intelligence, and much more. And for the first time we have included, at no charge, a virtual docent led tour of the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery.
Our Distinguished Visiting Professor for 2021 is David W. Blight, Sterling Professor of History and Director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University. Dr. Blight’s lecture, “Frederick Douglass in His Times and In Ours,” is dedicated to the memory of John F. Ford, Chesapeake Forum’s Founding President. It will be presented via Zoom on Thursday, January 21st at 4pm and will also be available as a video recording to watch at your convenience.
Chesapeake Forum will be online once again with live Zoom class sessions and with recordings of those sessions. In addition to 24 courses and nine new instructors we also welcome three new, energetic community members to our board: Norm Bell, Linda Earls and Peggy Ford. Our recorded classes from the Fall 2020 session were so popular we have archived six of them for continued availability. We invite you to check our website, to familiarize yourself with our many courses and faculty.
