Tulane School of Liberal Arts Magazine
The New Orleans Issue Spring 2020
Message from the Dean
When we established the School of Liberal Arts Magazine one year ago, we decided that each issue would be organized around a theme. Topics would be bold, taking up subjects that matter. They would have resonance across multiple disciplines and allow us to showcase the frequently unexpected ways in which our faculty and students were thinking about big questions.
