Aldrete-Guided Linothorax Project in the News

The Discovery Channel recently reported on Professor Greg Aldrete’s linothorax faculty/student collaborative research project.  The poster referred to was designed by UWGB graduate Scott Bartell (history and humanistic studies) and last week won the Best Poster Prize at the Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America. More info, including the poster and video, can be found on the project’s website.

New Course: Great Works

Professor Coury is offering a special opportunity for Humanistic Studies majors (and minors if they like) to meet one of the requirements for the Humanistic Studies Major.  The requirement is to take either Hum Stud 350: Interdisciplinary Study of Great Works or Hum Stud 351: Interdisciplinary Themes in the Humanities, neither of which is offered very often, unfortunately.  Professor Coury has offered to direct an Independent Study (Hum Stud 498) that will meet the same requirements of Hum Stud 350.

The basic requirement of this opportunity is to attend and participate in the Great Books Discussion Group held once each month at the Brown County Library.  The list of books being discussed this semester and the individuals leading the discussion of those books is available here.

If you are interested, you should contact Professor Coury to work out the details of the Independent Study.  But, you need to do so immediately; the first discussion, with Professor Derek Jeffreys on Thomas Aquinas, will be held Tuesday, September 9.
