The Cambridgeshire Alliance of Lifelong Learners ("CALL") organises its own study days and health walks in addition to the courses provided by its affiliated groups.
New CALL Spring Short Course
As it is not possible to run normal dayschools a new short course is being offered in February. One advantage of Zoom is that the tutor can be anywhere, and so the opportunity has been taken to get the popular tutor Rosemary Williams, who lives in Wales, to give a course.
CALL Spring Short Course 2020
A short course on
The Adventurous History of the Hanse, with Rosemary Williams
On Saturdays 13th and 20th February on ZOOM
The Hanseatic League was originally a self-help pact between a group of German merchants, but it grew to a mighty trading organisation whose tentacles spread to every corner of medieval Europe. This short course will outline the history of the League from its humble beginnings to its eclipse by the new commercial powers of the modern world, with particular emphasis on the links between the Hanse and Britain.
Please note this course is now full.
In November 2020 we ran a ZOOM short course on A Work of Art or Nature? – Visual Culture in the Age of Darwin with Kajsa Berg
Our first study day was held on 30th November 2019 at Bluntisham. It was a talk by Fiona Lucraft entitled Leonardo da Vinci: Renaissance Artist and was a sell-out success.
We aim to run at least two day schools a year, so please check back on this page for updates on the courses on offer.
