Spring Semester at Bryn Mawr

It does not feel like spring on this gelid afternoon at Bryn Mawr, but I've just completed drafts of syllabi for the new courses I'm teaching this spring semester: Power and Resistance, which looks at \ theories and practices of power in contemporary political life; and On The Human Condition, a seminar examining Hannah Arendt and political thinking. "New" is not completely right: both courses update courses I taught at Deep Springs College, although each has some substantial changes; I think I've improved these courses dramatically, but I'll have to wait and see how well they work. I welcome your thoughts and suggestions in the coming weeks. (I will post final versions of these syllabi under "Teaching" once I start the semester in a few weeks.)
