Dr. Bill Brennan is teaching a course called “Exploring Regina’s History” at the Lifelong Learning Centre, College Avenue Campus, University of Regina this fall. Each class will run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and there will be plenty of class discussion.
“One of the joys of teaching at the Lifelong Learning Centre is that the students are enthusiastic,” says Dr. Brennan. He works hard to make sure there’s new content in every course he teaches, for repeat students.
His topic list for this fall suggests history doesn’t belong only to the past – it is being made every day. Among other things, Dr. Brennan says he’s looking forward to a lively exchange about this October’s civic election and Regina’s future.
Topics to be discussed:
- September 21: The Founding of Regina
- September 28: Regina’s Economy since 1882
- October 5: Beautifying Saskatchewan’s Capital City
- October 19: A Regina Perspective on the1935 On-To-Ottawa Trek
- October 26: Saskatchewan’s First Socialist Government
- November 2: The 2016 Regina Civic Election and our City’s Future
- November 9: Regina, Moose Jaw and Buffalo Pound Water
- November 16: Saskatchewan’s Love Affair With the Automobile
- November 23: Sports, Popular Amusement and High Culture
