Special Course Offerings Celebrate Bryn Mawr’s 125th Anniversary

Posted April 2nd, 2010 at 11:54 am.

As part of Bryn Mawr’s 125th-anniversary celebration, the College will be offering a collection of courses in education, English, biology and history, as well as a  course offered by the Growth and Structure of Cities program on community mural projects. The  umbrella theme of the courses in the group is “Changing Education.”

The community-mural-projects  course will be co-taught by 2009 Hepburn Medal recipient Jane Golden, executive director of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program

The group of courses is part of a new pilot program titled “Kaleidoscope,” which connects multiple courses, their students and faculty in a single semester (or in some cases across contiguous semesters) through common problems, themes, and experiences for the purposes of research and scholarship.

Fall 2010 “Changing Education” courses include:

  • “Identity, Access and Innovation in Education,” taught by Jody Cohen
  • “Women’s Higher Education in the 19th and 20th centuries: The History of Bryn Mawr College,” taught by Elliot Shore
  • “Mural Arts,” taught by Jane Golden and Shira Walinsky
  • “The Historical Role of Women in Genetics and Embryology,” taught by Greg Davis
  • “Finding Knowledge Between the Leaves: 19th Century Literature of Education,” taught by Anne Bruder
