Please read Paul Powers’ Welcome Letter to New Students (pdf).
This year’s E&D kickoff event–William Stafford: Poetry, War, and the Process of Writing–will take place on Friday, August 30, in Agnes Flanagan Chapel at 1:30pm. Attended by all E&D students and faculty, this plenary event features a panel of Lewis & Clark faculty from different disciplines: Pauls Toutonghi, Associate Professor of English; Cari Coe, Assistant Professor of International Affairs; and another faculty member to be announced.
In preparation for this panel presentation, you are asked to read a small set of texts by Stafford, including poetry, an essay on writing, and some reflections on war and conscientious objection. This small set of texts is available at the link below.
In the following video, Paul Powers introduces Exploration and Discovery—better known as E&D— the course where you can immerse yourself in an array of the great texts (Freud, Plato, and the Bible); improve your writing, reading, and speaking skills; and discover what the liberal arts are really all about.
