Summer is upon us!
The school year is over, so it’s time to start reading.
Over the years many people have written to ask me where they could find all of Hannah Arendt’s syllabuses. They are housed at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC in her teaching files.
Fun facts: Hannah Arendt never held a tenure track teaching position. Her first post was at Brooklyn College in 1942. Her first lecture was on the Dreyfus Affair, which become integral to The Origins of Totalitarianism.
Here is a collection of Arendt’s syllabuses. I hope you enjoy them.
