Savor some food for thought with this new series! Each Lunch and Learn course meets for one hour on four consecutive Fridays. Grab your lunch and join HCC faculty online to gain insights into new and interesting topics. The series will run during lunch hour from 12:00 to 1:00 PM on Fridays from March 5 to March 26.

Lunch & Learn: Perspectives on Culture

Human Culture is a vast and diverse topic. We’ll do our best to highlight four specific areas in this lunch-and-learn series. Join us to learn a little more about different cultures, ancestry, and the incredible circumstances and experiences that make people unique!

This series, Perspectives on Culture, starts with a  presentation by Janice Weinberger who teaches human inheritance. It will focus on the scientific angle with DNA and heredity. Another instructor will discuss how we identify and define cultures – symbols, language, social norms, values, and artifacts. Two other lectures are scheduled.

Genealogy on the Internet *NEW!*  - A Non-Credit Course At Howard Community College
In recent years with the vast amounts of genealogical data now available on the Internet, both “treasures” and “tribulations” await someone wanting to conduct a search on their own family’s ancestry. In this class, you will learn the major providers of genealogical content, how to discern the difference between “good” and “questionable” data, and enhance your searching skills to improve your existing family tree. You will receive guided tours through fee based sites and engage in real-time searching on free sites. Between classes, you will receive optional assignments to research further on your own tree for discussion at the next class.
This course will be offered online via Canvas and Zoom. Course information, including a meeting link and login information, will be emailed to registrants within 1 week of the course start date.
