How to register for a study group

 

MCLL Online

The covid-19 pandemic has presented MCLL with the challenge of transferring all its study groups and lectures to a Zoom online platform. Volunteers have worked hard to ensure that members have the technical support they need to be able to join remote Zoom sessions.

Because all study groups and lectures are currently delivered entirely online, some of you who don’t feel comfortable working with computers might be concerned about your ability to join online Zoom sessions. If you’re experiencing Zoom anxiety, please be reassured that MCLL volunteers will do everything they can to help you learn how to join a Zoom study group or a Zoom lecture. If you would like someone to phone you and help you join a practice Zoom session, please send an email request to Martin Coles, chair of the IT Committee. His email address is martincol [at] aol.com.

 

Refund Policy

In recognition of the fact that some members might try an online study group and find the experience unsatisfactory, MCLL has made it easier for you to ask for your money back. If, after you’ve tried the first two sessions of a study group, you would like your money back, you can receive a full refund. The deadline for requesting a full refund is the start of the third week of study groups, January 25, 2020.

The requirements, however, of the visual arts from the spectator, as well as the spectator's requirements from these arts, have changed radically over the years, and by taking the above approach we will gain new insights and appreciation.

ECONOMICS AND SOCIETY

YCMS 274 How to Build a Fairer, Greener, More Equal Society

Time:   Wednesday 2:30 -4:30 p.m.
Duration:   10 weeks
Study Group Style:  Moderator Presentation Group
Maximum number of Participants:  24

Structural inequalities affect all of us. Recent research by Thomas Piketty shows that less equal societies almost always have more violence, more disease, more mental health problems, higher infant mortality rates, reduced life expectancies, as well as less democracy. Corporate taxes are down from 56% to 15% and yet are still not paid. Canadian corporations are stashing more than $1.6 trillion dollars in offshore tax-havens, thereby depriving government coffers of $25 billion a year that could be used for public services. We will be exploring the book, The Trouble with Billionaires, by Linda McQuaig and Neil Brooks for some answers.

Project analysis is central to our day-to-day choices both personal and public.

Downton Abbey’s reflection of the glittering life in a stately home with its social divide actually shows the twilight of a way of life.

By 1700 the post-Roman world was a distant memory and Europe was caught up in new ideas, inventions, and discoveries. Progress was the norm and every day brought new things. Out of 17th century Humanism there emerged a philosophical movement led by Voltaire, Newton, Diderot, Hume and Smith, which we now call the Enlightenment, and which still dominates our way of thinking. Waterpower changed manufacturing and industrial output surged in an age of textile mills and iron bridges. It was the age of Bach, Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. Alas, it was also the age of revolution and global conflict.

Towards the end of the session, we shall consider what the long term consequences might be of the COVID-19 pandemic.
