Once the Guns Fell Silent: Germany between Versailles and Hitler @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room
Jul 16 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Once the Guns Fell Silent: Germany between Versailles and Hitler @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Dr. Mark Szuchman to talk about life in Germany between the cessation of fighting in November 1918 and the ascent of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor in February 1933. The post-war years in Germany signaled a seemingly continuous struggle to make sense of politics, the economy, indeed of normal life. This lecture will concentrate on key years of post-war Germany (1918-1933), serving to provide a broader context and a better understanding of what ensued thereafter. Ironically, some of the conditions experienced in Germany may be seen reflected in other regions of the world and at different times, including our own. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.

Where’s Teddy When We Need Him? Clues from the Progressive Era to Address Today’s Problems @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room
Jul 23 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Where's Teddy When We Need Him? Clues from the Progressive Era to Address Today's Problems @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Dr. Steven Sinding to talk about Teddy Roosevelt and the Progressive Era. The Progressive Movement arose during the last decade of the 19th century and then gained national momentum during the years between Theodore Roosevelt’s ascendancy to the Presidency and the 1920 election of Warren G. Harding. A central aim of the Progressive Movement was to address the excesses of the Gilded Age and bring a greater sense of equity to national life. The talk will identify how the Progressives grappled with the issue in their time and what we can learn from their experience and apply to today. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

The GMALL Debate 2019 @ Long Trail School
Jul 30 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The GMALL Debate 2019 @ Long Trail School

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) will once again host a genuine debate based loosely on the format used since 1823 by the Oxford Union of Oxford University in England. Back by popular demand, the debaters are Derek Boothby and Peter Radford, with Steven Sinding again moderating the proceedings. Engaging in oratorical combat, one of our gladiators will propose and the other will oppose the motion. “The motion before this meeting is that THE PRESENT CONSTITUTION IS OBSOLETE AND SHOULD BE REPLACED.” Members of the audience will then be invited to make short statements for or against the motion. After concluding remarks by the two speakers, there will be a vote by show of hands. Registration for the talk is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.

The Double-Edged American Dream @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room
Aug 6 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The Double-Edged American Dream @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Tom Asher, a retired constitutional and charitable lawyer, to talk about the American Dream, which is a long-running and inspiring national-greatness myth. It posits boundless resources, freedoms and successes. Until recently the myth largely kept its overall promise, though not always and not for all. But in the 1970s, a lost war in Vietnam and an overwhelmed domestic economy launched persistent wage stagnation for many Americans. Still, despite widespread dissatisfactions, the sky’s-the-limit Dream remains a national ethos, often luring us into costly lost wars abroad and infrastructure neglect at home. Registration for the talk is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
