Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

What should the academic writer always remember?

Ashley E.
Answer:

The answer to this question is twofold. First, the first draft should, generally speaking, be messy—a place for the writer to express her ideas without worrying too much about cohesion and coherence. Second, the revision process is about refining the paper's claim and excising that which is unnecessary: "killing your darlings," as Faulkner said. Writing is a process; it takes time, patience, and attention.

Subject: Philosophy

Question:

How does philosophy help us to live meaningful, engaged lives?

Ashley E.
Answer:

Philosophy, at its core, is about asking questions, but that doesn't mean there aren't any answers, as some may think. Dialectical in nature, philosophy asks us to engage in conversation about life's "big" questions. This ongoing conversation encourages—indeed, demands—critical thinking and curiosity. If we stopped asking questions of this nature, we would simply become complacent.

Subject: English

Question:

How does studying English literature help to shape students into responsible, lifelong civic learners?

Ashley E.
Answer:

Studying English literature challenges students to think critically and abstractly. Poetry, in particular, asks us to read closely, paying particular attention to meaning and polysemy. It challenges us to be ok with ambiguity, to come up with creative solutions, and make evidence-based claims. These are essential skills for engaged members in a healthy society.
