An interdisciplinary seminar for fifteen faculty members to study five New York neighborhoods and develop a humanities across the curriculum model for technical and professional courses.

This interdisciplinary study,conducted in partnership with the Municipal Art Society of New York, will engage fifteen faculty members from humanities, technical, and professional disciplines in an investigation of five New York City neighborhoods selected for their architectural, literary, and cultural distinction. It will feature a seminar conducted by visiting scholars and tightly correlated field study with these same scholars. A Humanities Across the Curriculum model will be used to incorporate new humanities content into a wide range of courses. Information literacy, as a 'liberal art' that reflects critically on the nature of information itself in its social, cultural, and philosophical meanings, will be embedded throughout.
