Courses and the curriculum as a whole are at the heart of the Aydelotte Foundation’s mission.
AF workshops aim to develop skills and techniques and to enrich our capacity for collaborative inquiry.
We are exploring the creation of a consultancy practice that will draw upon the institutional knowledge and insight of experienced faculty across academia.
We are investigating and assembling work on underrepresented histories of how Black people, institutions, and ideas have existed outside of, pushed against, or reshaped from within the ideas and institutions of the liberal arts.
The Aydelotte Foundation was charged at its creation with encouraging faculty and administrators to enter more vigorously and creatively into public conversations about liberal arts education and its future.
Read updates on our research interests, including open questions and difficult problems that we are grappling with.
In conjunction with the Black Cultural Center and the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility, the Aydelotte Foundation is pleased to invite you to a conversation with Davarian Baldwin (Trinity) and Gabriel Winant (Chicago) on a critical understanding of the past and present political economy of "eds and meds." The conversation will be moderated by Jamaal Green (Penn) and Andy Hines (Swarthmore). The event will be held on Zoom. It is open to all in the Swarthmore community and to the public. To register, visit http://bit.ly/BaldwinWinant.
This event is part of the Aydelotte Foundation's project on "Race, Racism, and the Liberal Arts." Please visit our website for updates on this research initiative, including additional events and publications.
