Founded in 1919 as a course on War and Peace Issues, the central purpose of Contemporary Civilization is to introduce students to a range of issues concerning the kinds of communities – political, social, moral, and religious – that human beings construct for themselves and the values that inform and define such communities.

The site provides students of the course with exploratory materials related to the course's assigned texts.  It also serves as a platform to present connections between Contemporary Civilization and other courses of the Core Curriculum.
