Humanities Track: Dr. Chris Schlect
This short course introduces major themes and ideas in the Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus. Participants will learn how to approach this great text with a critical and appreciative eye, which pushes them to confront the most basic issues of historical writing.
STEM Track: Dr. Mitch Stokes
One of the most difficult puzzles facing classical Christian educators is how to apply their pedagogical vision to mathematics. In this short course, Dr. Stokes discusses how this might be realistically done, using calculus as a case study.
