The development of a general education course on the value of work.

A paradox of modern working life is that we see work as a necessary evil but expect to find fulfillment in it. Answers to the enduring question "Why Work?" emerge from the highest human ideals, yet they reflect the most concrete concerns about providing for oneself and one's family. All workers, at all levels of education, can give an answer to this question, though most can also give good reasons not to work. Our deep ambivalence toward work makes serious reflection on its place in our lives imperative. This proposal outlines the development by King's College and Dr. Jonathan Malesic of a new undergraduate core curriculum course entitled, "Why Work?" The course will be developed during the Summer of 2011 and offered twice between September 2011 and December 2012. To accomplish these goals King's College requests funding in the amount of $24,920 from the National Endowment for the Humanities Enduring Questions Program.
