Anna's Introduction

AnnaP's picture

On paper, I am a Haverford senior comparative literature major with a minor in French and a concentration in gender and sexuality studies. In real life, I love studying languages (French, Spanish and also teaching English as a second language), traveling, eating, and running. I studied abroad in Paris for my junior year, which only increased my interest in traveling, language learning, and teaching (not to mention my interest in eating, which probably increased most of all). I am a literature major who is skeptical of science, and I feel that this class would give me the chance to intelligently explore my skepticism and to critically engage with the concept of evolution which I believe has had an enormous influence not only on the development of science but on the way we conceive of society, of our economic system, and of ourselves. I am looking to move some things from the category of "Things I Don't Know I Don't Know" to "Things I Know I Don't Know."

I also love Camus and think the Plague is a carefully crafted book that raises an enormous number of hard questions, so I'm excited to revisit that.

Jenny's Introduction

I am a senior at Haverford College majoring in biology. I live in Philadelphia so Haverford/Bryn Mawr is basically my neighbor. I enjoy leisure reading and would love to travel more. I am ashamed to admit that this is my first Bryn Mawr class and in hindsight, I should have taken more advantage of Tri-co. I took this class because I was curious about the common grounds between english and biology. I look forward to the readings and discussions.
