Scott Cawelti will examine sections of the documentary “The Vietnam War” during the upcoming Keep on Learning community education series, beginning Thursday, Jan. 31.

Cawelti, University of Northern Iowa professor emeritus, will use the Ken Burns documentary to take a closer look at American involvement in the war.

Classes continue Feb. 7, 14 and 21 in the Heritage Room of Saemann Student Center. Coffee will be served at 9 a.m., followed by the class from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Parking is available near Saemann Student Center for those entering campus via Wartburg Boulevard.

Pre-registration is not required. The first class of each session is free; a $35 fee due at the second class covers the rest of the sessions.

Other topics offered in the series will include “To Your Good Health” in March and “And That Changed Everything” in April.

The Keep on Learning series is sponsored by Waverly Health Center. The Wartburg Alumni & Parent Relations Office coordinates Keep on Learning with the assistance of a volunteer committee. For more information, call 319-352-8491, email or visit
