Everything You Always Wanted to Know (about the Humanities Sequence)
Learn about the Humanities Sequence and its interdisciplinary approach to Western culture. Humanistic Studies 216-219 is an intensive yearlong exploration of the landmark achievements of the Western intellectual tradition. With a team of faculty drawn from across the humanities and social sciences, students examine pivotal texts, events, and artifacts of European civilization from antiquity to the present day, as part of an ongoing cultural conversation with modernity and with the world. The course is enhanced by guest lectures from preeminent scholars and by excursions to museums and performances. Our themes are the great ones, ethics, politics, beauty, truth, and—in a year when Princeton will make a formal reckoning with its historical debts to slavery—European legacies of bondage and freedom.
Please join us for one of our panel discussions, Friday, April 21 and Thursday, April 27, both being held from 2:30-3:30 pm in McCormick 101.
