The initial registration period will run from 9:00am Monday, December 14 to 4:00pm Monday, January 11. You can register at any time during this period and receive equal consideration for classes that become oversubscribed.

All oversubscribed study groups and Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) will be subject to a lottery to give everyone an equal chance to get in. Early registration does not increase your chances.

Everyone who applies for programs that become subject to the lottery will be notified of the outcome by Thursday, January 14.

Members who are not selected will be given refunds, placed on a wait list, and invited to join if space becomes available. Our goal is to issue the refunds during the week after the lottery.

Registration for classes that are not full will still be possible after January 14.
Remember you can register for past lectures or presentations in our Video Catalog. 

As before, you can register on-line or by mail. (The preferred method for registration for this term is online since staff ability to process mailed registrations is more limited due to COVID-19)

All payments must be made at the time of registration.

OLLI Special Projects Presents – “Torn from the Headlines” 

This monthly series goes behind the headlines with a two-part program each month. Hear first from an expert on the topic with an opportunity for an extended Q and A.  On the day following the session, join a continued facilitated discussion in the Commons. Registration now open --$55 for the series (monthly January-June) or $10 per individual session. 

Check out our January topic!

The Role of the Federal Reserve and Financial Deregulation During the Trump Administration: How Will it/Should it Change under the Biden Administration? 

Why is the Federal Reserve so much in the news lately? Its recent repeated rescue of the short-term funding market is one example. More broadly, the Trump Administration has pursued less regulation and oversight of financial institutions.  What have been the outcomes of this trend? What role does the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) – established by the Dodd-Frank Reform (2010) - play?  What goals and priorities should the Biden Administration have in relation to financial regulation?  In what direction will Janet Yellin take the Treasury Department, and how will its role complement the regulation policies of the Administration?

Monday, January 11th, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm. Online. $10 
Tuesday, January 12th, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Facilitated follow up discussion in the Commons with Karen Bantel. No Cost.

OLLI Distinguished Lecture Series Presents
This lecture is sponsored by Katherine and Peter W.K. Woo, in honor of the dedicated women and men of science for their life-changing discoveries in medicine.

Tuesday, January 12th, 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Online. $10


Stress and Brain Health from Biology to Social Context
Dr. Akil and her colleagues have provided the first psychological evidence of endorphins, and showed that endorphins are activated by stress and inhibit pain. In investigations of the mechanism underlying stress activity in anxiety and depression, she demonstrated that social defeat in rodents activates unique neural pathways resembling those alerted in human depression. Her team has also focused on the role of specific genes in the pathology of mood disorders. 

Dr. Huda Akil is a graduate of the University of California, University of Iowa and the American University of Beirut. She is the Gardner Quarton Distinguished University Professor of Neurosciences at The Molecular & Behavioral Neuroscience Institute at the University of Michigan. She has made unique contributions to the understanding of the brain biology of emotions, including pain, anxiety, depression and substance abuse. She is the author of over 500 original scientific papers and has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Science.


OLLI’s Third Thursday Morning Lecture Series - Advances in Science                           
Thursday, January 14th, 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Online. $10

Cosmology: The History of the Universe
This talk will present the history of the universe, from the moment of the Big Bang to the present cosmological epoch. During this span of time, the universe experiences a brief phase of superluminal expansion, develops an asymmetry of matter over anti-matter, produces a substantial component of dark matter, synthesizes light nuclei, and leaves behind a background radiation field. Galaxies, then stars and planets, are formed during the later stages of this sweep of cosmic evolution.

Dr. Fred C. Adams, Ph.D. is the Ta-You Wu Collegiate Professor of Physics at the University of Michigan. He works on a wide variety of topics in theoretical astrophysics, including cosmology, star formation, and extra-solar planets.

OLLI Special Projects Presents – OLLI @ Home Series
Rebecca Van Dyke, a birder and OLLI member, introduces us to her world of birding and the added joy of exercise, outdoor beauty and identifying birds.

Kelly Vore, owner of Downtown Home and Garden, will share her bird experience with feeding and watering tips as well as discuss the challenges of co-existing with squirrels and other critters and managing that never- ending quandary.

Rebecca Van Dyke is a retired UM physician who has lived in Ann Arbor for 30 years. As the eldest child of a college biology professor (who knew his ornithology), she knew little aside from some of the common birds. When she retired six years ago, she started to travel and realized that it was fun and challenging to look for and identify birds. 

She has traveled in the US and abroad, often with knowledgeable guides. This past year she has explored many of the wonderful parks and nature preserves in the area, combining exercise (walking), viewing beautiful nature and finding and identifying birds.

Downtown Home and Garden has been providing quality birdseed and feeders for Ann Arbor and our surrounding area for decades. It was the first to bring thistle feed to Michigan and it continues to receive weekly deliveries of seed from L & D Finkbeiner Farm, from Saline. Its drive-thru barn (originally built for horse and buggy in 1905) easily accommodates today’s vehicles for swift drive thru and load and go. Quick, convenient and out of the elements!

Downtown Home and Garden can be contacted at info@downtownhomeandgarden.com before or after January 18 for information and/or purchases. 

Field Guides: 
These are the three best-known up to date guides.  The Sibley and Peterson guides are for the Eastern half of the US.  Western versions for each of these are available as well.  Local independent bookstores and bird supply stores usually have these books or can order them. 
    1.  Sibley Birds East, second edition, 2017, Alfred A Knopf, publisher) 
    2.  Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America,                   seventh edition, 2020, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 
    3.  Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America, 2005, Houghton Mifflin               Co. 

Binoculars:   
Every birder should have a good pair.  Check out "The Audubon Guide To Buying Binoculars:  Budget to Premium" (online) to see examples of the wide range of binoculars that have been tested and rated by Audubon experts "Gear Advice".  That online page also has a video showing new users how to adjust the binoculars for their eyes.  No two eyes are the same.  

Local Audubon Society:

OLLI Urgent and Critical Lecture Series Presents
Tuesday, January, 19th, 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Online. Free

           
Emily Toth Martin          Lona Mody
Covid-19 Health Update: Trends, Treatment and Vaccines
UM Epidemiologist Emily Toth Martin and UM Infectious Disease Physician Lona Mody will explore the latest updates in Covid-19 on campus, in Ann Arbor and across the state; treatment successes and challenges; and vaccine outlook.

Dr. Emily Toth Martin, PhD, MPH, is on the faculty of Epidemiology at the UM School of Public Health. Her research focuses on building a greater understanding of the epidemiology of viral respiratory diseases (including RSV, bocavirus and influenza) through the use of molecular epidemiology. In particular, her work aims to identify strategies to reduce infections, particularly in individuals with chronic comorbidities and in hospital infectious environments (including MRSA/VRE coinfection).

Dr. Lona Mody, MD, is one of very few internists in this country with an expertise in aging populations, epidemiology, an active research laboratory in microbiology and a translational research agenda focused on vulnerable aging population. Her NIH and AHRQ funded work has created a thriving consortium of post-acute and long-term care facilities in SE Michigan interested in developing interventions to enhance infection prevention in a traditionally resource poor setting.

OLLI Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee Presents
Anti-Racism Exploration/Discussion Series of Caste by Isabel Wilkerson 
Tuesday, January 19th, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Online. Free. Registration Required. 
    
Co-facilitators: Faye Askew-King and Karen Bantel 
Registration required (please register by end of day January 11). You can register HERE
Registration only covers Part I. Part II registration will come at a later date. 
Introduction: Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, has written a well-researched, narrative history titled Caste: The Origins of our Discontents, that is asking us to look at our collective history from a new paradigm, that of caste vs. race and/class. We are offering this Discussion Series to allow participants to examine and reflect upon this reframing of our history, and its implications for our present and future as a nation. We want to offer participants a safe space forum to interpret, consider, and challenge the insights offered in Caste. Our hope is that through these thoughtful and difficult conversations about our nation’s past, we will gain a better understanding of how that history is operating today.  

This Discussion Series will serve our collective benefit by beginning to think of ways that we as individuals and as a community can make changes, big or small, to improve the circumstances and experiences for our children, grandchildren, family, and friends in the near and far futures.

Following an intensive review and discussion of the book, we will then offer, using this new paradigm, the option to participants to continue with a series of monthly discussions throughout 2021 on additional selected topics. Participants will provide input on topic selection. Anticipated topics include: health care disparities, our criminal justice system, housing policies, economics, and black feminism.
Goals: To increase understanding, awareness, and sensitivity to issues of racial inequity and bias. Create community conversation and opportunities for self-reflection, personal growth, and behavior change. To consider possible personal action steps addressing racial inequities.

Topics: 
Part I:
January – March: bi-weekly reading and discussion of Caste by Isabel Wilkerson.

Part 2: April-December: monthly readings and discussion on related anti-racism topics (to be determined).

(Participants will be asked to contribute topic ideas at the beginning as their input is valuable to their learning.)

OLLI’s Third Thursday Morning Lecture Series - Advances in Science                           
Thursday, January 21st, 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Online. $10
This lecture is sponsored by Susan Fisher

Gravitational Wave Astronomy – Listening to the Universe 
Gravitational waves are minute disturbances of space itself, which can arise from distant and massive but compact bodies, such as black holes and neutron stars. Using them, scientists are probing some of the most exotic phenomena in the Universe. Insights from discoveries made so far, including some surprising new objects, will be presented, along with the potential for new discoveries that will make gravitational waves essential to the next century of astronomy and cosmology.

Dr. Keith Riles has carried out research in both experimental particle physics and gravitational wave physics. As a charter member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), founded in 1997, he initially led the LIGO detector characterization group and more recently has led searches for continuous gravitational waves from galactic neutron stars. His group at the University of Michigan hunts for signals from waves ten thousand times weaker than the first gravitational waves detected in September 2015. Gravitational waves are minute disturbances of space itself, which can arise from distant and massive but compact bodies, such as black holes and neutron stars. Using them, scientists are probing some of the most exotic phenomena in the Universe. Insights from discoveries made so far, including some

Meet the Lawyer for Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr.
A Conversation with Pioneering Civil Rights Hero Fred Gray 


Free & Online via Zoom: click here to register
Congressman John Lewis called Fred Gray one of "the Founding Fathers of modern America." 
In 1958 Dr. King called him "the brilliant young Negro who later came chief counsel for the protest movement." 


Mr. Gray will be interviewed by OLLI instructor and speaker Doug Mishkin, himself a lawyer.  OLLI is pleased to offer this 90-minute free program on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 6:00pm Eastern/5:00pm Central time.  We can think of no better way to honor the memory of Dr. King in anticipation of the January 18 Martin Luther King Day than to celebrate the achievements of his lawyer, Fred Gray.
