Literature, Philosophy, & Culture session (LPC) is designed for students with an interest in the expression and interpretation of creativity and culturally significant texts.
Participants study fiction, philosophy, poetry, theater, film, music, visual arts, dance, and other creative arts.
Instructional staff will frame texts and media comparatively and internationally, enabling students to think more fluently about their places in the world and cultivate the skills to better articulate themselves in speaking and writing. Students will be presented with interdisciplinary and international perspectives and will consider the function of the arts and humanities when inspiring solutions to social problems and dilemmas.
Yale Young Global Scholars Program invites students from over 125 countries and all 50 U.S. states to spend two weeks at Yale University attending an academic session of their choice. Participants experience university life through Yale faculty lectures and small-scale seminars, all while meeting peers from around the world.
Is LPC a Good Fit for Me?
If you are intrigued by any of the following questions, then this session is a great choice:
What makes an argument compelling? • In what ways can dance function as a political statement? • How do economics impact the production of art? • What potential for expression does music offer when words fail us? • Where does meaning come from in avant-garde film?
