Course Description:
The humanities – the name for studies that investigate the complex question of what it means to be human – are at the heart of how we understand ourselves and how we understand others. Humanistic study hammers out, circulates, contests, defends, and revises our beliefs about the past, selfhood, citizenship, morality, responsibility, kinship, love, identity, economies, fear, rights, beauty, health, ethics, boundaries, heroism, and faith. This course, designed especially for first-year Texas Tech students, is a broad introduction to the humanities across disciplines. In addition to the section instructors, it features weekly lectures by a cross-section of Texas Tech’s top humanities professors from departments such as Anthropology, English, History, Theatre & Dance, and Philosophy, each in his or her areas of expertise. Through these lectures and weekly discussion sections, students will come away from the course with an understanding of the ways in which the humanities address large questions that affect all of us. They will also have had the opportunity to experience some of the best humanities faculty at Texas Tech.
