Liberal Studies Co-Curricular Events
Your activities outside the classroom are essential to the enhancement of your classroom explorations. That is why many of the student organizations and activities within Liberal Studies are referred to as co-curricular. These events and organizations are often designed to bring to life what you read and discuss in classes. Given our ìcampusî and the nature of our curriculum you would be cheated if the activities that are designed and sometimes assigned did not take advantage of this great campus/city that we occupy. It is therefore often required of you to attend the opera, visit a museum or attend a reading. In addition to the assigned co-curricular events in your classes, there are other events that students and faculty put together that add volumes to you educational experience. Some of those are listed below:
The annual Colloquium brings students and faculty together to discuss a topic related to all Liberal Studies core classes. The day-long event includes keynote addresses by academics distinguished in their fields followed by small, discussion-centered breakout sessions; it is also accompanied by a web module of faculty-authored reference documents available on the Virtual Commons Blackboard site. Modules from past Colloquia are also available there.
The Faculty Student Reading is headed by Liberal Studies Professor of Writing, Robin Goldfin. The readings take place once a semester at the Bowery Poetry Club where 15-20 students can sign up for open mic night. Students typically read their poetry, prose, rants, diatribes, manifestos, novels-in-progress, and sing songs. There are also 3-4 faculty members who also read their works.
Liberal Studies Lecture Series
The Liberal Studies Lecture Series is headed by Liberal Studies Professor of Modern History, Rolf Wolfswinkel. Topics vary yearly as guest lecturers, experts in their respective field, come to campus to discuss the chosen topic with students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The Lecture Series is open to the NYU community and is free of charge. Usually the lecture series of comprised of three lectures and is followed by a reception.
Dean's Circle Research Colloquium
Held in the spring (usually in April) by the Dean, the students who were chosen for the Deanís Circle present the final projects that they had been researching throughout the year. †This event is open to all students, faculty and staff.
