Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Membership in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is required to register for Osher classes. If you are unsure about your membership status, call us at 801-581-7155. If you are new to Osher, follow the Membership link at the right to learn more about membership.

This course will be a selective history of the 1950s in the United States. It will cover topics such as Cold War tensions, music, literature, motion pictures, politics, crime, sports, racial integration and challenges, and the economy. The lectures will be punctuated with illustrative quotes and youtube samples and will include some weekly handouts. Assuming that most if not all of the students in the class have experienced the 1950s, the course will encourage discussion of those experiences.
