A new Core science course to replace Frontiers of Science is on its way, but it won’t be ready for the fall.
Leo Schwartz reflects on the Core, thoughts that transcend time, and the universality of the Columbia and human experiences.
Next spring, two Core Curriculum courses will head to Columbia’s most popular study abroad location—Paris.
Rather than interpreting “identity” and “community” through texts, what if we were to project our own experiences toward these questions directly?
If the University were to add a course devoted to questions of identity, gender, and bias, the College would not only engage an untapped branch of historical and philosophical thinking, but in doing so, Columbia College would also challenge its own history.
By studying women in the literary roles they occupy, regardless of prominence, we can develop insight into how these women think.
Modern ideas of how women are valued overlooks traditional honoring of women as mothers and central household figures.
If the Core Curriculum aims to truly capture the influential thought-leaders of a given time, then excluding most women is only honest. Why not spotlight women in their own course instead?
