First Annual Intercollegiate Great Books Student Symposium

To culminate the three-year collaborative work of creating new Great Books Curricula at Oakton and Harold Washington colleges, students from those institutions along with a participant from Wright College convened on the Washington campus in downtown Chicago to present academic papers on the ethical, economic, legal, and psychological issues raised in Jane Austenís novel Pride and Prejudice, and organized around the theme of "the individual and the community." The texts of three papers presented are provided below.

As part of the effort to evolve and grow as a National Books Curriculum Academic Community, this symposium is now becoming an annual event, the next one being held in the spring of 2007.
