Fox presents paper

Mary Catherine Fox, Ph.D., professor of interdisciplinary studies, recently presented a paper at the 18th annual conference of The Association for Core Texts and Courses on Friday, March 30, in Milwaukee. The theme of this year’s conference was “Liberal Arts Education and the World: Inquiring into, Preparing for, and Living in the Real World through Core Texts.”

Fox’s paper, “Occupy Tocqueville: A Primer for Our Time” both proposed a pedagogy for teaching Tocqueville, as well as citing the work of seniors enrolled in the Capstone course of the Lasallian Core Traditions curriculum to address the conference theme.
