Voices and Experiences of Poverty: A New Interdisciplinary Humanities Curriculum

A three-year curriculum development project that would create interdisciplinary course modules and curricular materials examining poverty.

Faculty at Borough of Manhattan Community College (CUNY-BMCC) propose a 36-month program, Voices and Experiences of Poverty – A New Interdisciplinary Humanities Curriculum, that would bring together faculty from the diverse disciplines of philosophy, economics, history, business, and women’s studies, to create a new interdisciplinary curriculum. The project creates a poverty focus for introducing humanities texts, which will allow us to bring cross-disciplinary studies in literature, history, and philosophy into any of our community college classrooms and has three interconnected components: (I) the “Poverty and Humanities Institute for Faculty,” (II) “Voicing Poverty” events and activities hosted at the BMCC campus, and (III) the “Poverty, Humanities, and Teaching” website, which will include both a digital database and student-centered digital humanities project called "Mapping Poverty."
