Course Title: Revisiting the Federalist Papers at a Time of Uncertainty (Spring Term 2019)
Participant Testimonials:

Prof. Fowler deserves a standing ovation for the quality of the course and the way she ran it. It sets the "gold standard" for future Osher courses.

The course leader was passionate about the subject, and her depth and breadth of knowledge on the very relevant course topic made this dynamic class interesting, enjoyable and very informative. A masterful course, taught by an experienced and highly skilled professor.

Linda was well organized and encouraged participation by all participants. We had a lively intelligent class, but Linda returned us to the topic at hand if we started to stray afar, with grace and intelligence.
