NEH Enduring Questions Course on the Purpose of Education

The development and teaching of a new course for sophomores and juniors on changing concepts of an educated person.

This project develops a new course on a fundamental concern of human life as addressed by the humanities - the enduring question, "What is an educated person?" The proposed course will use the tension between liberal education and professional training as a lens for considering how this question has shaped Western thought since the Ancient Greeks and Romans, and as a means of making the history of education come alive for today's students.
