Students in Leslie Eckel’s SF1148 “Brave New Worlds” explored Boston’s North End, stopping at Mike’s Pastry to sample their famous cannoli.
Barbara Abrams’ SF116 class, “Enlightened Insanity,” made a visit to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where they contextualized the idea of the Salon, focusing on artistic and intellectual inspiration.
The “Revolutions in Thought” Seminar for Freshman” visited The Museum of African American History on Beacon Hill on October 4. This is the site of the oldest African American church building in the nation, the birthplace of the American abolitionist movement, and home to an exhibit of photos of Frederick Douglass — the most photographed American of the nineteenth century. Our trip enriched student understanding of the revolution in thought that led to the condemnation and abolition of slavery.
