KACL fall classes to feature Appalachia from prehistoric times to the present, all about DNA, legal pitfalls using Facebook and more
Morning classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will run from 10 a.m. – noon, while afternoon classes are from 1:30–3:30 p.m. Classes are held on the campus of ETSU at Kingsport, 1501 University Blvd., near Allandale Mansion, with the exception of a day trip to Wilderness Road State Park in Ewing, Va., and Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate.
KACL, in partnership with East Tennessee State University, has arranged a diverse series of courses with experts from many fields who welcome questions and comments from the participants. There are no grades, homework or tests.
For a fee of $45, enrollees can take advantage of any or all the classes. And this year, in light of the tight economic situation, the KACL board has decided to continue the policy that additional members of the immediate family can enroll for only $22 each. Also, any person who is interested in trying KACL courses may sample a single class free of charge.
Tuesday mornings will focus on the popular “Around the World” series with discussions led by visitors to England, Thailand, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, and Greece. Topics include British culture, the deadly tsunami in Thailand, the Khmer Civilization of Southeast Asia, the Trojan Horse, and the Parthenon of ancient Greece.
