Braniff Alumnus Founds ‘The Arts of Liberty Project’
The Arts of Liberty Project is an online, interdisciplinary resource for teachers
and students of the liberal arts and liberal education. Launched in January 2013,
it offers a wealth of materials, including complete courses in logic, arithmetic,
geometry, and astronomy, more than 50 study guides on great books, and hundreds of
art and architecture images. The site also hosts an online peer-reviewed scholarly
journal and is the publisher of Raymond DiLorenzo’s posthumous “The Human Word.”
“It’s not a site that attempts to replace what we do in the classroom, but a single
place where ‘tools of the trade’ are collected and ready for use,” said Jeffrey Lehman,
PhD ‘02, The Arts of Liberty founding director and assistant professor of education
at Hillsdale College.
The website is a collaborative effort, including materials from scholars and professors
around the world. They have also founded an online peer-reviewed journal where scholars
can submit articles and book reviews to encourage widespread dialogue among teachers
of the liberal arts and liberal education.
Today, Lehman continues teaching at Hillsdale College. He previously taught at Thomas
Aquinas College and also served as a visiting lecturer for the University of Dallas
“Thomas More & Shakespeare in England” program in the summer of 2006.
