Course 104: Going to War: The President as “Commander-in-Chief”
Dr. David Smailes, Tuesdays May 26 – June 16 10:45 am – 12:15 pm
The constitutional power to determine how and when to go to war is one of the most important parts of our founding document, and yet no power has undergone more changes throughout American history.
In this course, we will examine what the Founders intended in this crucial area, how the role of Congress and the President have changed over the years, and the ways presidents since 9/11 have increased their power as “Commander-in-Chief”.
Registration required. Please visit the Adventures webpage.
The Rules of Blackheath: Evelyn Hardcastle will be murdered at 11:00 p.m. There are eight days, and eight witnesses for you to inhabit. We will only let you escape once you tell us the name of the killer. Understood? Then let's begin... At a gala party thrown by her parents, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed--again. She's been murdered hundreds of times, and each day, Aiden Bishop is too late to save her. Doomed to repeat the same day over and over, Aiden's only escape is to solve Evelyn Hardcastle's murder and conquer the shadows of an enemy he struggles to even comprehend--but nothing and no one are quite what they seem. Deeply atmospheric and ingeniously plotted, The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a highly original debut.
