“The liberal arts foundation taught at Curry was really meaningful to what I do now. I remember that Curry wasn't the prototypical academic environment where you had a large class with lectures translated strictly from a textbook. Instead, there was real world language being communicated in a way that students could understand what the professional landscape was going to be like in three or four years.”

Professor Bette Manter delivered her paper, "Royce's Problem with Sin: Morbid Obsession or Moral Insight?" at this year's Josiah Royce Society Conference, August 16-18, in Grass Valley, California (Royce's birthplace).
