“Students often combine an interest in a language with an interest in history, politics, or anthropology, which are not typically subjects that are taught in Spanish or German or Italian or French. This allows students to mobilize their language skills and interests more specifically in other subject areas.” - Professor Sebastiaan Faber on the Languages Across the Curriculum (LxC) program at Oberlin.  (via Oberlin College & Conservatory)

We all have our own stories and histories. Inspired by US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey’s poem “History Lessons” the Oberlin community has contributed to the History Lessons Project—a public story sharing effort made up of individuals’ personal “history lesson” statements.
