Dartmouth to Offer a New Course: “#BlackLivesMatter”

In a new spring-term course, Dartmouth students will investigate questions of race, inequality, and violence that arose last summer following the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

The class, called “10 Weeks, 10+ Professors: #BlackLivesMatter,” will be taught by close to 20 faculty from about a dozen departments and could be a model for future cross-disciplinary courses.

“The benefit of this course is that we will be able to offer a comprehensive look at one topic across a wide range of disciplines,” says Denise Anthony, a sociology professor and the vice provost for academic initiatives, who will be among the course faculty. “This course could be a template for future multidisciplinary classes on subjects such as terrorism, the brain, the Arctic, and the financial crisis.”
