What's New on Serendip - July 2007
We are starting to use Serendip's Exchange, the new totally interactive section on Serendip, almost exclusively now. We welcome you to visit and comment on virtually any topic that you find there. One of our featured student webpapers is "Why, I Say, White People Can't Dance" - come join in this provocative conversation.
For the first time (we think), a course at Bryn Mawr will be offered to alums online. In the fall of 2007, Anne Dalke will be teaching Critical Feminist Studies to current undergraduates, and a large part of the course discussion will take place on Serendip's Exchange. She is actively welcoming the many generations of alums to participate (with no papers, no credits and no tuition) in these online converations. For more information, see the course announcement at the link above and send an email to adalke [at] brynmawr.edu.
