Course Description

In the words of Benjamin Disraeli, British diplomat and Prime Minister, "What we anticipate seldom occurs; what we least expect generally happens." This class will explore an inevitable aspect of human existence: how we deal with a crisis. We will examine the elements that make up a crisis and using the medium of cinema, lectures, and discussions, gain a better understanding of the many types of crises we encounter in our everyday lives. What are the cultural, social, and economic impact when confronted with crises such as losing a loved one, dealing with health, political, legal, and financial situations, or the challenges of aging? How do these challenges, disruptions, and stressors test our beliefs, identity, and integrity? What resources are available to resolve or manage them? True to the spirit of this class, we will look at how people deal with crises in different parts of the world.
