      This course will elucidate the role of the most mysterious agency in the Federal government:  the National Security Council or NSC, and its Staff.  The function of the State Department, the Department of Defense, and the Intelligence Community in implementing the President’s national security agenda is well-known.  The NSC and its concrete day-to-day activities remain, however, a mystery despite the vitally important part the organization plays in determining how the U.S. interacts with the world.  This course will lift the veil surrounding the NSC and its Staff, providing an introduction to its history, evolution, and current activities that will allow a better understanding of the national security policy of this or any President.

      The Yale-Jefferson Awards are presented annually, recognizing sustained public service that is individual, innovative, impactful, and inspiring. The recipients are three Yalies – a Yale College student, a graduate or professional school student, and a member of the alumni body – all of whom have demonstrated service that draws on the Yale community and benefits the world beyond Yale.

      Join us for this kick-off event as part of Celebrate Service Week, as we honor the 2022 award winners. They have made an impact in so many ways – providing leadership in service to elders, providing educational and health resources to orphans and other vulnerable populations, and strengthening and supporting the New Haven community.

      In this virtual interactive session, we will celebrate these honorees with a virtual awards ceremony followed by a fireside chat, where they will share their stories and discuss the impact of their service engagement. In addition, our award participants will talk about their work in the context of today's challenges, including the COVID landscape, and ways to get involved.

      Add to Calendar 2022-10-10T19:30:00 2022-11-14T19:30:00 America/New_York Yale Alumni College presents Contemporary Broadway: Exploring 21st-century musicals

      This course examines relatively recent (21st-century) Broadway musicals that challenge ideas about that musical genre. Some of these works address disturbing or even offensive topics. Others violate norms of representation in musical theater, expand the range of musical theater into novel realms of music and subject matter, or use the platform of the American musical to advance social and sociopolitical arguments. In class, we will ask questions about the relationships between popular entertainment and contemporary social and political issues. To what extent can and should theater break taboos or offend? Are there limits on what is possible and appropriate in musical theater in these respects? We will also investigate how musical theater uses music specifically (as opposed to just words) to enhance (or detract) from its artistic effects. That is, how do songs, musical style, and instrumental scoring affect the ways that the messages of theater, culture, and even activism are delivered and received?
