Professor Jennifer McCrickerd's section of Paths, Fall 2015 & Spring 2016

The topic chosen as the focus of interdisciplinary study this semester is that of 'happiness.' Just about every discipline has something to say about happiness and when anyone writes about happiness they inevitably draw on work from other disciplines. This makes it a particularly good topic for our study. We will begin the course with an overview but as time progresses we will, as a class, decide what focused question we want to answer. Then, as the semester progresses, each student will also decide what particular question regarding happiness, as an individual, to answer.
