Columbia College launched a new Lit Hum Web site. The site provides students of Lit Hum -- Literature Humanities: Masterpieces of Western Literature and Philosophy, as it is officially known -- with exploratory materials related to the course's assigned texts. It also serves as a platform to present connections between Lit Hum and other courses of the Core Curriculum.
CCIT worked closely with Christia Mercer, the Gustave M. Berne Professor of Philosophy and the Chair of Literature Humanities and a host of others she brought together to make the site a reality. Christia recently introduced the site as a mechanism to "confront the unfamiliar and familiar and compare our responses to generations of readers."
The site is built in Drupal 6. It is currently accessbile to individuals with a valid Columbia login.
