Crosscut Seattle tells us that Harvard has finally gotten its act together on feminist and women’s studies.
I was pleased to see that Harvard has updated its curriculum. Under former President Larry Summers, Harvard neglected feminist and women’s studies. Fortunately, under Drew Gilpin Faust, Harvard has added 30 new courses this year.
Kudos to Harvard, their new female president, and to Crosscut for understanding the importance of the change.
Belated thanks to DD, for this good news and for her fascinating blog, Reading Animals.
O, one last thing: it doesn’t seem philosophy has been involved in the change. I hope nobody is going to fall back in surprise at this.
