The Core Curriculum

"Literature Humanities"

Event Date: 
1962

After a year of deliberation, the Stern committee finds that the aims of Humanities A (Literature Humanities) are not easily defined. It further criticizes the course for not providing "context" for the reading of the texts.  This critique meets the resistance of Humanities A faculty and students. Students surveyed express no interest in having background readings or critical essays added to their reading list. Literature Humanities students and faculty prove more enthusiastic about their course than the committee.
