Check out our new t-shirts on our Facebook Page, where you can also order them!
Here are some of the designs:
Art by Picasso, showing Don Quixote and Sancho. Quote from Dante's Purgatorio. (Based on the shirt designed by the second-year students graduating from Core in Spring 2011)
Art from Doré's illustrations to Dante's Paradiso, showing Beatrice with Pilgrim Dante. (Based on the shirt designed by the second-year students graduating from Core in Spring 1998)
Art by the Core staff, showing the mountain of books each Core student must scale in order to reach... the coffee that keeps us going when we have to write our Core papers. Quote from Montaigne's Essais. (Based on the shirt designed by the second-year students graduating from Core in Spring 2007)
Art composite consisting of a fossil ammonite (natural sciences), the Boston skyline (social sciences), and a seated Muse by Mucha (humanities). The text, meaning "another sun", comes from the Greek author Heraclitus, the 11th fragment: "Tên paideian heteron hêlion einai tois pepaideumenois" (translation at the bottom of the image). Based on the shirt designed by the second-year students graduating from Core in Spring 2000.
This is the art that will appear on the front of each of the four Fall 2013 Core teeshirt designs (with shirt and ink color to match the back).
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.
