Announcing Fall Lecture Series
LLM announces another outstanding fall lecture season, offered both virtually and in-person.
On Tuesdays from October 11 to November 29, 2022, Olivier Courteaux is presenting China: The History and Geopolitics of a Superpower and on Thursdays from October 13 to December 1, 2022, Howard Mednick brings us What Is This Thing Called Classical Music? LLM is pleased to be featuring these renowned speakers and their timely and popular topics this fall.
To accommodate both audiences the format of the lectures has changed. The new format is:
10:00 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. Coffee 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Coffee at home
10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Lecture 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Lecture
11:35 a.m. to noon Q&A 11:35 a.m. to noon Q&A
Please note that all lectures will be recorded. These recordings will be available to all participants for one week. You will receive an email with a link to the recording.
The venue for the in-person lectures is Erindale United Church, 1444 Dundas Crescent, Mississauga. To avoid the very sharp turn at Dundas Crescent turn onto Robinson Street. Then turn left on Adamson St. and follow Adamson to the end. Adamson ends at the rear church parking lot. If you require wheelchair access, drive around the church to access the front parking lot. Please note that the roadway around the church is a fire route. Any cars parked in the fire route will be tagged and towed.
Participants are asked to respect all current public health measures, which can be found at https://www.mississauga.ca/city-of-mississauga-news/covid-19-recovery/current-measures-and-restrictions/
Whether in person or virtual, LLM’s two fall lecture series will be something to look forward to as we emerge from the restrictions of this long pandemic.
China: The History and Geopolitics of a Superpower
A new world order is emerging as proposed in 2013 by Xi Jinping: “The realization of the Chinese dream will bring happiness to the Chinese people as well as to the other peoples of the world.” Behind the words, what is China really up to?
What is This Thing Called Classical Music?
This lecture series will review several styles, genres and formats of classical music. We will come away with a better understanding of what classical music is all about.
