Due to an emergency which has forced Prof. Jay Samons to cancel his campus obligations today, today’s promised Lunch Box Talk on the topic of democracy is also canceled. Prof. Formichelli, the series organizer, extends her regrets to those of you this news disappoints. If another Lunch Box Talk session is scheduled before the end of the semester — whether with Prof. Samons again or another speaker — it will be announced by email and on Facebook and with the usual announcements in lecture.
Welcome!The Core Blog is a hub for information and media related to the CAS Core Curriculum at Boston University. It will be updated regularly, with photo galleries, interviews, links to related reading online, news of events or activities, and other kinds of content that help connect our Core people—prospective, current, and former students—with each other. You can stop by here once a week to scroll through the posts, or make this your homepage in order to keep your finger on the pulse of the Core. Either way, we hope you find this to be a pleasant way to strengthen your connection with the great people, the great books, and the great questions we encounter in the Core.
