THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


IMAGINE A LIBERAL ARTS PROGRAM THAT IS BOTH RIGOROUS AND RELEVANT.

One where hard work meets real autonomy. Our unique liberal arts programs are designed for fiercely independent scholars. Our programs are reading and writing intensive and grounded in the scholarly development of critical thinking. But the hard work feels different here. That’s because our flexible curriculum gives you the freedom to explore exactly what is relevant to you.

WHAT IS NURTURED WITHIN SMALL, INTIMATE CLASSES?

SMALL SEMINARS

Studying liberal arts at Lang is made even more powerful thanks to our small seminars. • The Princeton Review named Lang the best college in the United States for encouraging debate and discussion. • Among national universities, The New School had the highest proportion of classes with fewer than 20 students, according to U.S. News & World Report (2017). LANG FACULTY

Lang faculty respect the independent learner. They know Lang students have strong ideas, and they are here to help you launch your academic journey and find your career path. More than 100 world-class scholars teach at Lang. Many of our faculty teach in other colleges of The New School, and Lang students even have the opportunity to study with teachers from our graduate programs. Faculty are actively engaged in their own research and eager to draw students into their projects—or help them design their own.

FEATURED FACULTY Natalia Mehlman-Petrzela Assistant Professor of History

Q

Lang courses often bring together different

perspectives in provocative ways. Is that true

of your courses?

A

That certainly is true of a new course I’m teaching called Publishing Life. It’s actually part of a grant that Lang got from the Mellon Foundation. In the course, students and I collaborate with Verso Books, a preeminent left-leaning American press. Verso publishes a lot of New School authors—it’s respected and world renowned.

Q

What are the benefits of Lang’s approach

A

In class, we investigate the work of theorists embedded in a Marxist framework and self-help authors—writings in two totally different genres. The premise is that the two groups of authors are actually taking on very similar questions, like, “How do we lead a ‘meaningful life’?” and “What is the philosophically coherent way to be a smart consumer and/or producer of these kinds of genres?”

to small seminar courses? I’ve had some of the same students in five or six classes. So one benefit of Lang’s small seminars is the fact that students are able to come back to the same professor in their department, be familiar with him or her, and expand on ideas developed previously. There are 18 people in the room, max—so everyone involved is going to come into the class already having some type of relationship. But Lang seminars also bring the classroom out into the world.

24

I always say to my students, “My most profound hope is that our academic work will actually shape your understanding of your own experiences. These texts should really bump up against your identity and who you think you are in the world.”

So it’s not just that the students and I get to be buddy-buddy. Lang seminars involve community-based projects that are great opportunities to enhance the academic dimension through a more 360-degree kind of engagement.

THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


FEATURED FACULTY David Bering-Porter Assistant Professor of Culture and Media

Q

How does your research influence the courses you teach?

A

My research is on the mediated body—in other words, how the

body works as a medium or a canvas that reflects and informs

your relationship to the world. So my courses reflect that interest.

In Race and Digital Media, we were trying to think about how race

functions as a technology within our society, understanding not

only how people of color and certain ethnic minorities interact

with technology, but also that race itself is a construct that has a

societal function—it works like a cultural mechanism of identity,

oppression, privilege, etc.

We’re really trying to push through some complicated theoretical

ideas in class.

Q A

Why is Lang the right college to investigate these ideas? Knowledge doesn’t pertain to one discipline at a time. I think

that Lang has been a particularly fruitful institution for looking

at the body, race, identity, culture, and media because of how it

allows students from a wide variety of disciplines, a wide variety

of backgrounds, to come into this space and have conversations

about interconnected networks of knowledge.

We come at our work in class from a wide variety of angles.

I naturally have a lot of Culture and Media students. But I’ve

also had students from across the university take my courses,

including several from Parsons’ Fashion Design program, which

has been really fun in terms of process. They bring an interesting

aesthetic sense to the creative and design-oriented projects

in my classes, and I’m looking forward to having that kind of

aesthetic sense in the class on data visualization that I’m

teaching next semester.

25


FEATURED FACULTY Allison Lichter Joseph Assistant Professor of Journalism and Design and former Deputy Emerging Media Editor at the Wall Street Journal

Q

Lang students are known for integrating

thoughtful inquiry with real-world

collaborative action. How does your

teaching help students do that?

A

Lang has a tradition of rigorous scholarly study and a deep

appreciation of professional careers, and that enriches our students’

experiences. I’m a good fit here because of that. After working at

WNYC radio for nine years, I joined the Wall Street Journal as an

online features editor and eventually joined what was then called

the Social Media desk. This was when many people at the Journal

questioned what social media could do. I translated between two

worlds, traditional journalists and digital readers, and our team

experimented to see what worked and what didn’t.

As an instructor, I see an opportunity to impart what I’ve learned

to future journalists. Most important, I want my students to be

26

great collaborators. Collaboration and trust are essential for news-

rooms to keep pace with changing technology and audience needs.

Our students need to know how to build relationships and solve

problems in effective ways.

Q

How is NYC a resource for students?

A

We help students connect with important people in the news

business. For example, this past semester, both the standards

editor and the deputy general counsel for the New York Times

visited a class taught by a longtime NYT reporter, Mireya

Navarro. They discussed real news, fake news, and what the

truth means today. Students heard firsthand the lengths a

major news agency goes to to build the trust of its readership.

They engaged in conversation that inspired them to become

better researchers and analysts able to report with integrity.

The fact that we’re bringing in so many outside professionals

from institutions like ProPublica, the New Yorker, and Vox means

that our students are constantly interacting with frontline news

makers who are also potential future employers.

THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


FEATURED FACULTY Katayoun Chamany Mohn Family Professor of Natural Sciences and Mathematics

Q

At Lang, critical thinking is considered an

important skill for engaged citizens. How

do you help Lang students develop this

capacity through your work in science?

A

Our program investigates the dynamic interplay between human

health and the environment (natural, built, and social) in an effort

to simultaneously promote scientific innovation and socially just

practices. Our courses showcase how science can be an active

participant in change, not just a neutral discourse of facts and

equations. For example, in a recent senior seminar, students focused

on energy resources and planetary health by facing the very real

challenge of whether nuclear energy should be subsidized by taxes

and be included in New York State’s energy portfolio. Students took

on the roles of real stakeholders, such as CEOs, mayors, scientists,

nuclear regulators, public health researchers, and representatives of

Native American populations, and realized how multilayered and

complex energy policy can be. After the project, many students said

that they had a much more informed and nuanced stance on the issue.

Our students are invested in problem solving and social change, so

they need to learn how to negotiate, compromise, and shape health

and environmental policy and practice when their values differ from

others’. These are important skills that we teach in addition to the

concrete, scientific content, principles, and data analysis skills.

Q What are the benefits of Lang’s approach A

to small seminar courses? My freshman seminar course Biology, Art, and Social Justice integrates

art with labs. One module that has gained much attention is focused

on painting with bacteria. Here, students apply what they have learned

in the course to curate their own artistic design in a Petri dish and

present their work alongside a design statement. From this experience

they begin to see the similarities and differences between the scientific

method and the art/design process, the role that genes and environ-

ment play in ecosystem dynamics, and the parallels that can be

drawn between bacterial colonization and settler colonialism. 27

JORS Minors offer major opportunities.

With more than 50 minors, the New School curriculum is specifically designed to enable all our students to explore their interests across all schools and colleges. You can acquire new professional skills, develop an interdisciplinary outlook, and gain a competitive edge on job and graduate school applications.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF the RIGOROUS BA/BFA Pathway.

At The New School, you can simultaneously pursue liberal arts study and a studio or conservatory education and complete two degrees in five years. You can combine the professional training of Parsons School of Design or the School of Jazz with the seminar-style liberal arts education of Eugene Lang College— all within a single university.

ACADEMICS

33


RETH BEGIN EARNING A MASTER’S WHILE STILL AN UNDERGRAD.

If you are pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a college within The New School or are a transfer student who meets the program requirements, you can take master’s-level courses in your junior year. You can earn up to 18 credits (depending on the master’s program) in New School graduate-level courses and apply those graduate credits to both your undergraduate program and an MA or MS degree.

34

THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


HINK HINK LANG COURSES ARE NEVER TYPICAL.

They are designed to allow you to create an intellectual journey that is uniquely your own. Here are a few examples: A History of Civil Rights in NYC Activating Urban Spaces Buddhism and Cognitive Science Chemistry of the Environment   Culture, Ethnicity, and Mental Health   The Forest of Symbols Giving an Account of Oneself Global Soccer, Global Politics History of Economic Thought Lang at the Guggenheim   Listening to America   Media Toolkit Green Roof Ecology  Poetry as Translation Inside the New York Times Watching Ballet/Watching Balanchine

ACADEMICS

35


DEVELOP A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE. Many Lang students spend a semester, academic year, or summer abroad taking courses, working at internships, or pursuing volunteer projects. With proper research and planning, you can study, work, or volunteer almost anywhere in the world. Lang offers options to study abroad both through the school and through other institutions, including • Short-term programs led by Lang faculty during academic breaks • Domestic exchange and pre-approved study abroad programs with partner institutions Past foreign study programs have taken students to • Buenos Aires, where they examined the relationship between democratic citizenship and neoliberal globalization as experienced by Porteños • Wrocław, where they debated the social, political, and cultural challenges facing today’s world with iconic philosophers Agnes Heller and Richard Bernstein • Shanghai, where they studied how rapid urbanism has transformed the city’s fashion and architecture over the past century
