Arts One is a year-long, interdisciplinary program taught at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada. It combines History, English, and Philosophy to introduce students to some of the classic texts of the past two millennia of world civilization.
Arts One Digital is an open, online extension or complement to Arts One that enables anyone to join this voyage of discovery and critical analysis.
We provide recordings and other material from lectures given in Vancouver by some of UBC’s most experienced and distinguished teachers. We hope they provoke you to think in new ways about authors from Plato to Shakespeare, Defoe to Coetzee, and about issues such as knowledge, monstrosity, science, and politics.
We also invite you to participate in the conversations and discussions around Arts One, for instance by contributing to one of our Twitter streams, commenting on student blogs, or even writing blog posts of your own.
