Alan Dershowitz and three other academics will lecture in Miami on Feb. 28 at an event co-sponsored by the Miami Herald and private company One Day University.
Dershowitz, who teaches at Harvard Law School, will lecture on freedom of speech and criminal justice in the Middle East. Also scheduled: Rutgers University historian Louis Masur on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War; Catherine Sanderson of Amherst College on positive psychology; and Tina Rivers Ryan, a graduate student in art history at Columbia University and alumna of Miami’s Gulliver Prep, on the five paintings every art lover should see.
“The goal is to educate and entertain a mostly 55+ demographic that yearns to go back to college — but just for a day and without homework, studying, or exams,” Steven Schragis, One Day University’s founder, said in an email.
The talks will take place at the James L. Knight International Center, 400 SE Second Ave., Miami, between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The cost to attend is $179. Those interested can register at: https://www.onedayu.com/events/detail/276.
