This interdisciplinary course covers the art, music, literature and philosophy from the mid 19th centure to the present, from Marx's Communist Manifesto in 1848 to Moises Kaufman's The Laramie Project in 2000. Incidentially, this latter play will be performed at Rhynsburger in April, and we are hoping to take the humanities to see the production. As far as honors content goes, we are teaching some challenging texts (Nietzche, Woolf, Rawls, Kushner) at a fairly rapid pace. The course material alone makes this class especially suited for honors students, and the design (one large lecture + 2 discussions/week) capitalizes upon the expertise of MU faculty not teaching in the sequence to set up in-depth discussions for teaching faculty who aren't, sadly, experts in every humanities discipline in the world.
