9-10:15 a.m.

Carbon Fee and Dividend: A Feasible Way to Address Climate Change?
Sharon Yohn '99, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemistry
Scientists from around the world agree that climate change is an issue requiring urgent action. But how do we reduce greenhouse gas emissions without destroying the economy? One idea that many economists support is imposing a fee on fossil carbon and then distributing the revenue equally among all citizens. We’ll explore this market-based revenue-neutral approach, learn how the non-partisan group Citizens’ Climate Lobby is bringing this idea to Congress, and share other signs of hope related to climate change.

Ecclesiastes: “Agnostic” Wisdom in the Bible
Bob Miller, Ph.D., Rosenberger Professor of Christian Thought and Religious Studies
The Book of Ecclesiastes has got to be the strangest book in the Bible, since it questions—and even denies—the basic message of the rest of the Bible. According to traditional Jewish rabbis, nobody under thirty should be allowed to read this book. Find out why.

Vietnam, the Draft, Citizenship and the All-Volunteer Military: A Special Discussion for the Class of 1968
Led by John Russell who served in Vietnam. On the panel will be fellow veterans: Mark Zaritsky, Paul Hirseman, and Clair Kenyon, along with Linda (Hartman) Bianchi, Jeff Cawley, Sally (Stever) Unger, Vic Arrington, and Pat Reber.
The Class of 1968’s senior year was part of a watershed in 20th Century American History. We were the first class that did not get a graduate school draft deferment as the US deployment to Vietnam escalated to a peak of 536,100. The summer of 1967 saw American support for the war fall below 50% for the first time. Mass protests began in October 1967. Within two months after graduation, we had to face the questions of: Do we get drafted? Do we enlist? Do we leave the country? Do we apply for conscientious objector status? Some who served in Vietnam came back broken, few of us got any respect. But is the all-volunteer army of the 21st Century a solution? And what has happened to the core patriotic American idea of a citizen army or individual commitment to our country’s welfare? Are the answers to these fundamental questions having an impact today on our sense of freedom and ability to govern? Join classmates in this interactive discussion.

Alumni College - Session 2
10:30-11:45 a.m.

A Bird's Eye View of Bird (and other jazz legends)
James Latten, Ph.D., professor of music

Who Is Baha'u'llah and Why Should I Care?
Debra Kirchhof-Glazier, Ph.D., professor emerita of biology
Our nation and the world are beset with unprecedented challenges. The Bahá'i Faith, the most recent world religion, offers unique solutions to address these problems through the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. This class will cover the highlights of Bahá’u’lláh’s life and show how his teachings provide hope and guidance for our time.

The Wonder Baby: The Immanuel Prophecy in Isaiah and Matthew
Bob Miller, Ph.D., Rosenberger Professor of Christian Thought and Religious Studies
During a national crisis in ancient Israel, the prophet Isaiah foretold the birth of a boy who would make everything all right. The New Testament tells us that this prophecy was fulfilled in the (supposedly) virgin birth of Jesus. This class examines what Isaiah thought his prophecy meant and the fascinating way it was “repurposed” for the story of Jesus.

A Field Guide to Super Powers
Jay Hosler, Ph.D., chair of biology, professor of biology
The modern super-hero has leapt from the comic page to conquer blockbuster movie screens around the world, but the abilities that make them super are routine behaviors for many animals. From bones defensively popping out of a frog's skin to the ability of some insects to freeze solid, this class will focus on super powers in the animal world.

Fermented Foods 101
Will Dickey, Ph.D., associate professor of English
This session will cover many of the basics of DIY food fermentation, considering sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha as well as less familiar ferments and the microorganisms that magically transform them into “superfoods.” We will discuss some recipes, various historical and cultural implications, and the health benefits of probiotic foods that you can make at home. We will also have the opportunity to sample and begin a few ferments in class.

Reconciling Freedom and Equality in US Democracy
Lauren Bowen, Ph.D., provost and professor of politics
This interactive session will explore the seeming tensions between freedom and equality in the American constitutional system. In particular, we’ll focus on free speech and the press and the ways in which a commitment to inclusion on the basis of race and gender may challenge and refine the scope and meaning of freedom of expression. See how Supreme Court cases illustrate this argument. Participants will also review and discuss some case excerpts and then help to decide some landmark cases.

Football Today at Juniata – a look at the strategies and trends
Juniata Football Coaching Staff
The Juniata football coaching staff will lead an enlightening discussion utilizing video examples and game footage to explore today’s game. How do football players practice and train?

It is a great way to check your own scientific literacy whether you were a science or non-science major.

We Are All Biased: The Ways in which Human Decision-Making is Predictably Irrational
Rebecca Weldon, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology
Humans are inconsistent and error-prone decision-makers. We tend to take risks even though the consequences could be fatal (e.g., drinking and driving) and behave in ways that are not consistent with our long-term goals in favor of something immediate (e.g., foregoing the long-term goal of saving money to splurge on a new television). The presentation will include in-class demonstrations of inconsistencies in reasoning and some of the most compelling behavioral and neuroscientific evidence that points to the fallibility of human decision-making.
