On Thursday, December 4 at 5:30 p.m. in the Lownes Room of the John Hay Library, Luther Spoehr, Senior Lecturer in Education, will give a talk, “Wayland and Magaziner and (Much) More: The Brown Curriculum through the Years.”

Has Brown always been a place of curricular innovation? Did Francis Wayland’s mid-19th century reforms foreshadow the New Curriculum of 1969? For 250 years, Brown’s undergraduate curriculum has sometimes stayed in step with its peers and sometimes struck out on its own. Spoehr’s talk will track the trajectory of this complex story of tradition and innovation.

This lecture is part of a series at the John Hay Library celebrating the University’s 250-year history. All lectures in the series highlight the University Archives’ “Elements of Tradition and Change” exhibit.

Please note, this lecture was originally planned for November 18. 

Date: Thursday, December 4, 2014
