Dune: The Science ofScience Fiction

Monstrous sand worms, futuristic space travelers, and ... the state of Oregon? The author of the much-loved sci-fi novel, "Dune," was inspired by the massive sand dunes on the Oregon coast to create the arrid landscape of Arrakis. Let's just hope the sand worms weren't inspired by real life.

The Celtic World

If jack-o'-lanterns are part of your Halloween decor, you have the Celts to thank! Ancient Celtic people in Ireland carved turnips on All Hollow's Eve and lit them to ward off evil spirits. When Irish immigrants made their way to America, they began carving pumpkins, which were native to North America, instead. And the tradition lives on even today! http://ow.ly/45Sy50GmEJ2

Travel through time from 500 B.C. to today and rediscover the Celts with a Harvard-educated professor.

Indigenous communities

We have much to learn from Indigenous communities of the past and present, from the architectural and astrological advancements of the Maya to modern-day models for sustainable living inspired by the Tlingit. While these two groups survive to this day, many cultures, languages, and entire communities have been lost to colonization and forced assimilation; we must learn from this history as well.

What happened to speed control on online version?
Just finished the 48 lecture series by Richard Baum - The Fall and Rise of China. GREAT course. Richard Baum's personal anecdotes add a dimension not often found in college lectures. It would be great if he could add on to it to update the period under Yi Jinping.
I just finished the 24 lecture course: "Understanding Imperial China: Dynasties, Life, and Culture." The content was masterfully woven and delivered by Andrew Wilson- a professor from the US Naval War college. This course along with the recent book: The Long Game by Rush Doshi is a great beginning to understanding China. (I'm only half way through the book.)
Hello: Could I try your service before "subscribing" to anything ? I do not want to have to call or unsubscribe in the event I do not want it. Thanks.
Hey Wondrium - any courses on Crypto?
I'm disappointed in Wondrium - again. I logged on and NONE of the courses in my "watch list" are there. It says I don't have any. Now I can't even find the one I had been watching.
Wondrium seems to be done this morning. It shows I have an account, but won't let me watch any videos from my account. :(
I was looking in summer 2021 The Great Courses catalog and observed that of the 62 courses listed, 58 instructors were male (skewed by the 11 (91.67%) diff male instructors for photog course) and 15 instructors were female (1 (8.33%) for photog course). I'm going by the names in the descriptions so that's 93.55% male and 24.19% female (the skewed percent is 117.74% instead of 100% due to 12 instructors for the photog course). Then, I looked at the images with an individual (not the book covers or images with more than one person) and I observed 6 (37.5%) are female, 10 are male (62.5%). The point is the courses skew to a male perspective. I'm sure Wondrium can do better representing females in its marketing and course delivery. I look forward to a more equitable representation of females in upcoming courses. Statistics show women pursue higher education more than men (Digest of Education Statics 2018, table 326.10). It would be great to see stats of who is pursuing "additional" education. Thank you
Hi, I have just been charged unexpectedly 30usd. I have no idea what this site it & that was the money I needed for food this week. I am totally screwed now, going into uni exams on monday. Can you please refund the money & cancel whatever subscription this is? Regards, Joshua
The Vietnam War was one of the United States longest and most violent war yet there is not one course dedicated to a war that took the lives 56,000 American lives. 😕
At one point I'm pretty sure I could see my watch history. Now, in history it only shows the last 50 EPISODES. I'm unable to see prior COURSES. Can that be fixed? I have watched around 10 courses but don't remember the names of all of them and I want to keep track. It helps me decide what to watch next.
