On Wednesday, February 24, the Columbia University School of the Arts held a dialogue with writer and cultural critic Lewis Hyde.
Staff Writer Jeff Davis has collected some of the more unusual and eccentric sign-offs from professors in order to add a little extra oomph to your next email.
Sometimes it’s nice to pretend that we can get some life-applicable skills out of our Core readings. Guest writer Olivia Grinberg-Phillips has collected some Homeric takeaways she thinks everyone ought to know.
