UW Lecture Series Starts Saturday

Saturday U, a half-day of college lectures and discussions, starts Saturday morning in Sheridan College's Whitney Academic Center.

The event will start with coffee and donuts at 8:30 a.m., followed by welcoming remarks at 8:50 and the first of three guest lectures at 9 a.m.

Participants may attend one, two or all three lectures, and a free lunch and question-and-answer session will be at 12:30 p.m.

The programs start with “Marketing the Wonderful Wizard of Oz: L. Frank Baum and Ozmania,” followed by “Jesus Reading Scripture at Nazarath: the Archeology of Worship in First-Century Synagogues” at 10:15 and, at 11:30, “Art and Religion in the Philosophy of Paul Weiss.”

Now in its ninth year, Saturday U is a collaborative program that connects popular University of Wyoming and Wyoming community college professors with lifelong learners. The program is offered nine times a year, twice each in Sheridan, Jackson and Gillette and once in Rock Springs, Pinedale and Cody.

The event is sponsored by UW, the UW Foundation and Wyoming Humanities and is presented locally by UW, Wyoming Humanities and Sheridan College.
