UChicago’s Core: Cultivating a Cornerstone Curriculum
The focus of this discussion will be UChicago’s Core Curriculum: it’s current state, its relevance in higher education and at UChicago today. It will also address different Core sequences, what it means to teach a canon and rethink it, how the Core has evolved, and how in the choices related to the Core come about. Finally, what does YOU BE MY ALLY say and ask of the Core? Panelists include Agnes Callard (Associate Professor, Director of Undergraduate Studies in Department of Philosophy), Sarah Nooter (Professor in the Department of Classics and the College), and Jennifer Spruill (Senior Lecturer, Social Sciences Collegiate Division and Co-Chair of Power, Identity, Resistance). Moderated by Christopher Wild, Deputy Dean and Master of the Humanities Collegiate Division.
