Liberal Studies

With its Senior Paper program, the Liberal Studies department puts into practice its commitment to lead young scholars in critical examination and contextualization of key texts from the world's canons. We have a fine crop of well-designed presentations this year from our History of Culture and Religion and Culture Humanities BAs, on topics ranging from "Jesus and the Temple" to "Environmentalism and Philosophy Today"; from discussion of the mysticism of the medieval Italian saint Bonaventure to investigation of gender, mysticism and the construction of holiness in early modern Spain; from a study of Iranian Manichaeism to the evolution over time of the idea of Last Judgment.
