<strong>Summer</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Course <strong>Catalog</strong> June–August


Dear Campus Community:<br />

Office of the President<br />

1000 E. Victoria Street, WH-450 | Carson, CA 90747<br />

February 28, <strong>2017</strong><br />

I am delighted to announce that the Toyota USA Foundation has granted<br />

$4 million towards the design, construction, and equipment of the<br />

new 87,000+ sq. ft. Science and Innovation building. The Center for<br />

Innovation in STEM Education on the first floor will be named after Toyota<br />

in recognition of this generous gift. This unprecedented funding creates<br />

a dynamic and forward-thinking partnership between CSUDH and Toyota<br />

that will inspire learning for students at all academic levels for generations,<br />

and better equip us to address workforce readiness issues in the<br />

South Bay and Los Angeles regions.<br />

Toyota’s substantial grant serves as a leadership gift for the capital<br />

campaign to raise money insupport of the new Science and Innovation<br />

building project. The Toyota Center will include a fabrication lab, smart<br />

classrooms, collaborative workspaces, labs for teacher demonstrations<br />

and training, and an outdoor workspace.<br />

With this generous investment, Toyota will have a long-lasting impact<br />

on this region, strengthening science, technology, engineering, and<br />

mathematics education and helping to develop a strong workforce for<br />

future employment in STEM fields. But the company’s generosity does not<br />

stop there. Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc., has committed an additional<br />

$750,000 for construction of a fleet of high-tech mobile fabrication<br />

laboratories pulled by four Toyota Tundra trucks, effectively mobilizing<br />

STEM education throughout the area to bolster the K-12 pipeline towards<br />

a college degree.You may have read about it in our latest issue of<br />

Dominguez Today magazine.<br />

This is another example of the great work that CSUDH does in this region<br />

and we should all be very proud that it is recognized and supported at<br />

this level. Together, we will continue to address the pressing needs of<br />

this community by preparing our students to enter the workforce of the<br />

future with confidence and success.<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Important Message from<br />

Dean McNutt<br />

Attention OLLI<br />

Members and<br />

Participants:<br />

CSU Dominguez Hills will begin<br />

construction of a new Science building<br />

Fall <strong>2017</strong>. Several Extended Education<br />

programs, staff and offices will be<br />

displaced due to the tear down of<br />

existing buildings and moving to the<br />

CEIE complex at the end of Spring<br />

semester <strong>2017</strong>. This impacts our<br />

Humanities graduate degree program<br />

and the American Language and Culture<br />

Program, both currently housed in<br />

SAC I and SAC II. The buildings are<br />

located adjacent to the New Library.<br />

CEIE’s available inventory of classrooms<br />

will be impacted and scheduling will<br />

become extremely tight for all programs,<br />

including OLLI. We will do our best to<br />

accommodate everyone’s schedules,<br />

but there may be instances when OLLI<br />

classes will be moved to other rooms<br />

or alternate times to meet the needs<br />

of academic, training and non-credit<br />

education programs offered through<br />

extended education.<br />

We ask you to be patient and flexible,<br />

as we do our part to assist the university<br />

accommodate the new construction,<br />

which will likely last several years.<br />

We apologize in advance for any<br />

inconvenience and thank you again for<br />

your understanding and cooperation.<br />

We will keep all stakeholders apprised of<br />

scheduling issues as quickly as possible.<br />

Cordially,<br />

J. Kim McNutt<br />

All adults are welcome to join OLLI at CSUDH. The organization<br />

is designed primarily for individuals 50 years of age<br />

Born Yesterday by Garson Kanin. World<br />

War II has just ended. Shady scrap metal king<br />

Harry Brock heads to Washington, D.C. to<br />

land a business deal. With a bitter, corrupt<br />

lawyer and a meek senator as his cohorts, he<br />

is confident he will succeed. His only liability<br />

is his own socially inappropriate behavior<br />

and the outrageously ignorant remarks of his<br />

showgirl lady friend, Billie Dawn, a beautiful<br />

woman with a deceptively simple facade.<br />

Harry hires the reporter who interviews him to educate Billie. He<br />

does not realize that under the ignorance and apathy, Billie is an<br />

intelligent woman with a sense of right and wrong. Personal and<br />

political ambition is exposed and outwitted by the “dumb blonde”<br />

who stands up to intimidation and shuts down a shady scheme.<br />

Proof by David Auburn. Catherine has inherited<br />

her late father’s mathematical brilliance,<br />

but she is haunted by the fear that she might<br />

also share his debilitating mental illness.<br />

She has spent years caring for her nowdeceased<br />

father, and upon his death, she<br />

feels left alone to pick up the pieces of her<br />

life. Caught between a new-found connection<br />

with Hal, a former student of her father,<br />

and the reappearance of her sister Claire, she<br />

finds both her world and her mind becoming unstable. When Hal<br />

discovers a groundbreaking proof among her father’s notebooks,<br />

she is forced to question how much of her father’s genius or madness<br />

she will inherit. Proof is a passionate, intelligent story about<br />

fathers and daughters, the nature of genius, and the power of love.<br />

Dealing with Hearing Loss<br />

Do you have a hearing loss? Do you suspect you have a hearing<br />

loss? On the other hand, perhaps you know someone who has, or<br />

whom you suspect has a hearing loss.<br />

Hearing loss is a decrease in the ability to perceive sounds. It can be<br />

partial or total, sudden or gradual, temporary or permanent. It can<br />

affect one ear or both. In general, the risk of hearing loss increases<br />

with age. It is one of the most common conditions affecting older<br />

and elderly adults.<br />

Hearing loss can make it hard to understand and follow a doctor’s<br />

advice and respond to warnings. Phones, doorbells and smoke<br />

alarms are harder to hear or to hear clearly. Hearing loss can also<br />

make it hard to enjoy talking with family and friends and often<br />

leads to feelings of isolation.<br />

In this presentation, you will learn about:<br />

• Hearing loss: what is it and what causes it<br />

• Symptoms of hearing loss<br />

• How hearing loss is diagnosed<br />

• How to prevent hearing loss<br />

• How to treat hearing loss<br />

NEW!<br />

• How to support family and friends who have a hearing loss<br />

Retirement Income 101<br />

NEW!<br />

How often do you receive advice on ways to grow your money?<br />

Frequently. How often do you receive advice on how to preserve<br />

and wisely use your nest egg to ensure it lasts throughout retirement?<br />

Seldomly. Accumulating your wealth is only one phase of<br />

your financial life cycle. This class addresses the main concern<br />

retirees have always had: Do I have sufficient income in retirement<br />

to live comfortably? This introductory course focuses on the<br />

“Baby Boomer” generation, who are entering this new frontier.<br />

John C. Pak, CFP ® takes you through the first step in developing a<br />

plan to navigate through the retirement phase of your life because<br />

your goal isn’t to only reach retirement, but to make it last.<br />

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:<br />

• Distinguish the difference between postretirement<br />

income and pre-retirement income<br />

• Point out where you are in your financial<br />

life cycle<br />

• Identify the risks involved during the<br />

distribution cycle<br />

• Have a better grasp of the 7 investment<br />

vehicles available<br />

• Create a basic retirement income plan<br />

John C. Pak has 18 years of experience in the financial advisory<br />

industry. John is active in spearheading ‘community outreach’<br />

initiatives with local colleges, public libraries, and lifelong learning<br />

centers in Los Angeles County to promote financial literacy<br />

and empowerment through workshops and seminars. He is also<br />

the founder of Otium Advisory Group, a fee only, comprehensive,<br />

texts to place the Arab experience in its crucial historical context for<br />

the first time. Tracing five centuries of Arab history, Rogan reveals<br />

that there was an age when the Arabs set the rules for the rest of<br />

the world. Today, however, the Arab world’s sense of subjection to<br />

external powers carries vast consequences for both the region and<br />

Westerners who attempt to control it.<br />

Updated with a new epilogue, The Arabs is an invaluable, groundbreaking<br />

work of history.<br />

(AUT) Winners and Losers<br />

in the Age of Automation<br />

Nearly half of all working Americans could risk losing their jobs<br />

because of technology. It’s not only blue-collar jobs at stake.<br />

Millions of educated knowledge workers—writers, paralegals,<br />

assistants, medical technicians—are threatened by accelerating<br />

advances in artificial intelligence. Smart computers are demonstrating<br />

they are capable of making better decisions than humans.<br />

Brilliant technologies can now decide, learn, predict, and even<br />

comprehend much faster and more accurately than the human<br />

brain, and their progress is accelerating. Where will this leave<br />

lawyers, engineers, teachers, and nurses? The author believes the<br />

key is augmentation, utilizing technology to help humans work<br />

better, smarter, and faster. Should we view these machines as<br />

competitive interlopers or as partners and collaborators in creative<br />

problem solving? This S/DG will help you decide.<br />

Astray, by Emma Donoghue<br />

(paperback, October 2013)<br />

(EMM) Astray—Emma Donoghue<br />

Short Stories<br />

This is an opportunity to combine short stories with American<br />

history. Donoghue (author also of Room) “explores the theme of<br />

emigration through the use of historical documents and personal<br />

letters {she} had unearthed over the last decade and more.”<br />

The New York Times book review (Nov. 4, 2012) continues,<br />

“The characters Donoghue has chosen as subjects…are traveling<br />

‘to, within, and occasionally from the United States and Canada,’<br />

and with few exceptions were ‘real people who left traces in the<br />

historical record.’” Each story starts with one of the historical<br />

documents or letters which she then develops into an interesting<br />

story. Presentations could expand on the time or subject in<br />

American history.<br />

(EUR) European History 1914-1949<br />

It is impossible to understand Europe today without knowing its<br />

history. In this course we will look at not only war and politics, but<br />

also the emotional, cultural and religious effects.<br />

The European catastrophe, the long continuous period from 1914<br />

to 1949, was unprecedented in human history—an extraordinarily<br />

dramatic, often traumatic, and endlessly fascinating period of<br />

upheaval and transformation. Incisive, brilliantly written, and filled<br />

with penetrating insights, To Hell and Back offers an indispensable<br />

study of a period in European history whose effects are still being<br />

felt today.<br />

To Hell and Back: Europe<br />

1914-1949, by Ian Kershaw<br />

(July 2016)<br />

(GEN) The Gene<br />

Siddhartha Mukherjee (author of The Emperor of All Maladies: A<br />

Biography of Cancer, for which he won numerous awards including<br />

the Pulitzer Prize) has now written The Gene: An Intimate History.<br />

Scientists have already found ways to alter the genetic makeup of<br />

children with harmful mutations, such as cystic fibrosis. Science will<br />

soon tackle more complex disorders, such as cancer and heart<br />

disease, by altering or replacing entire groups of genes. The<br />

questions are: Who will choose what procedures are acceptable?<br />

Who will receive them? And what might be the unintended consequences?<br />

Illness might progressively vanish, but so might identity.<br />

By the time The Gene is over, the story has covered Mendel and his<br />

peas, Darwin and his finches, plus the quest of Watson, Crick and<br />

their many unsung compatriots to determine the stuff and structure<br />

of DNA. We learn about how genes were sequenced, cloned and<br />

variously altered, and about the race to map our complete set of<br />

DNA, or genome, which turns out to contain a stunning amount of<br />

filler material with no determined function.<br />

Grace Without God: The Search<br />

for Meaning, Purpose, and<br />

Belonging in a Secular Age,<br />

by Katherine Ozment (June 2016)<br />

(GWG) Grace Without God<br />

How do you live a meaningful life without religion? Meet the<br />

“Nones,” a rapidly growing group of the religiously unaffiliated in<br />

America (so-called because they check the box that reads, essentially,<br />

“none of the above” when asked about their faith). While<br />

many Americans are raised in a religious tradition, recent decades<br />

have seen large numbers of families drift from their churches and<br />

synagogues, temples and mosques, and abandon faith-based<br />

practices. But what is lost with this exodus from organized religion?<br />

Studies show that religion gives us a moral grounding and a sense<br />

of identity by connecting us to our past and creating tight communal<br />

bonds. It also makes us happier, healthier, and more giving. But<br />

without the one-stop shop of religion, how do the nonreligious fill<br />

the need for ritual, story, community, and, above all, purpose and<br />

meaning? With a quarter of Americans identifying as religiously<br />

unaffiliated, these questions have never been more urgent. Grace<br />

Without God is both a personal and critical exploration of the<br />

many ways nonreligious Americans create their own traditions and<br />

communities in an increasingly secular age.<br />

Up in the Old Hotel,<br />

by Joseph Mitchell (June 1993<br />

(HOT) Up in the Old Hotel<br />

Joseph Mitchell was New York’s first true biographer; he paired<br />

a reporter’s precision with a novelist’s sense of narrative to create<br />

a series of intricate and revelatory profiles of the city in The New<br />

Yorker. “An excavator of lost souls and eccentric visionaries, his<br />

genius lay partly in a natural ability to connect with those living on<br />

the margins of society.” (The New Yorker)<br />

Employed by The New Yorker from 1938 until his death in 1996,<br />

his stories are still renowned for their precise, respectful observation,<br />

their graveyard humor, and their offhand perfection of style.”<br />

(JKP) James K. Polk and the Conquest<br />

of the American Continent<br />

James K. Polk is often overlooked in the consideration of the<br />

accomplishments of American Presidents but in his biography of<br />

Polk, Robert Merry points out that Polk completed the story of<br />

America’s Manifest Destiny—extending its territory across the<br />

continent by threatening England with war and manufacturing a<br />

controversial and unpopular two-year war with Mexico.<br />

This S/DG will look at Polk, the man and the President, as well as<br />

assess his accomplishments as the latter. He had four major goals<br />

as President and managed to achieve all of them: To lower tariffs;<br />

To institute an independent and working banking system; To obtain<br />

California; To win the Oregon Territory for the United States, which<br />

was in dispute with Great Britain when Polk assumed office.<br />

Elizabeth George, Guest Editor of The Best American Mystery<br />

volume are stories that demonstrate a mastery of plotting; stories<br />

that compel you to keep turning the pages because of plot and<br />

because of setting; stories that wield suspense like a sword; stories<br />

of people getting their comeuppance; stories that utilize superb<br />

point of view; stories that plumb one particular and unfortunate<br />

attribute of a character.”<br />

The Best American Mystery Stories 2016 is a feast of both literary<br />

crime and hard-boiled detection, featuring a seemingly innocent<br />

murderer, a drug dealer in love, a drunken prank gone terribly<br />

wrong, and plenty of other surprising twists and turns.<br />

(TAK) A Friendship That Changed Our Minds<br />

The lives and ideas of Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman have<br />

changed all our lives for the better, even if only through the<br />

better actions of others. These two psychologists worked together<br />

for years on the thought processes of all humans, and particularly<br />

on how we make decisions and the errors to which we are all<br />

prone. In the six years since publication of Kahneman’s book,<br />

Thinking Fast and Slow, many people have benefited from improvement<br />

in their thinking and decision making processes.<br />

This S/DG will examine the thought, lives, and relationship of<br />

Tversky and Kahneman (T&K) and how these have and may affect<br />

our lives.<br />

Michael Lewis has written this S/DG’s common reading about how<br />

T&K went about their studies, how intense their relationship was,<br />

and about their ideas in a very valuable book. This book explores<br />

the workings of the human mind through the personalities of the<br />

two men so fundamentally different from each other that they<br />

seem unlikely friends or colleagues.<br />

Family and Culture in Crisis<br />

by J. D. Vance (June 2016)<br />

(WWC) America’s White Working Class:<br />

A Culture in Crisis<br />

During this tumultuous election year, much attention has been<br />

focused on how Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, in different<br />

ways, have tapped into the anger of white working-class men.<br />

At the same time, little attention has been devoted to examining<br />

WHY there is so much anger among this group. Is it the loss of<br />

manufacturing jobs to other countries and automation or the loss<br />

of privileged status to minorities and women or something more<br />

amorphous? This S/DG will investigate the reasons for this anger,<br />

which has been growing for several decades, as well as effects of<br />

the anger, and potential solutions.<br />

The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has<br />

been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on<br />

with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been<br />

written about in such a searing manner from the inside. Vance tells<br />

the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like<br />

when you were born with it hung around your neck.<br />

volunteer organization that depends on the involvement of its<br />

membership to function and grow. We are looking for individuals<br />

who would like to lend their skills to the day-to-day administration<br />

of classes and to planning courses, activities and publications.<br />

Four OLLI committees currently exist, and they are…<br />

Marketing Committee: members develop a marketing plan,<br />

advertising and choose the appropriate media to promote OLLI.<br />

This may involve distributing flyers, holding campaigns and<br />

contacting newspapers with notices of OLLI news and events.<br />

Event Planning Committee: members are responsible for planning<br />

special events at OLLI. The special events include the Members<br />

Meeting, held in the spring, the OLLI Celebration, held in the fall,<br />

the Juneteenth celebration held in the summer, and other events<br />

throughout the year.<br />

Ambassador Committee: members assist with special events,<br />

reminder phone calls, special mailings, survey reviews, etc.<br />

Committee members support OLLI instructors in class and represent<br />

OLLI at designated South Bay events. Committee members are also<br />

responsible for greeting OLLI members at meetings and events.<br />

Curriculum Committee: members develop ideas for courses,<br />

lectures, computer workshops, discussion groups and field trips.<br />

They identify instructors from CSUDH faculty, community experts,<br />

and OLLI members, develop class schedules, and publish the OLLI<br />

catalog each semester.<br />

Other skills are needed and everyone brings valuable knowledge<br />

and experience to the organization. Look for calls for volunteers<br />

or call our OLLI office at (310) 243-3208 to say that you are<br />

interested in becoming an OLLI volunteer.<br />
