Annual Themes

The humanities program centers courses and programming each year under a broad theme. While individual units and content vary, the theme for the years 2017-18 through 2019-20 is revolution.

2018-19 Humanities Courses

HUM 103-104 continues with the course theme REVOLUTION. We build the course around four three-week units, each with a revolutionary artifact at the center. The course incorporates the long legacy of the humanities programs at Davidson in its attention to critical reading and writing about ideas that matter, but liberates itself from the inherited imperatives of coverage and chronology in the Western tradition.

 The 2017-18 course was featured in the Davidson Journal.
