Using “trigger warnings” — a way of letting people know in advance about sensitive topics — is not appropriate in university classes, according to one of the authors of this article. He supports his opinion with comments from the blog “Text Matters,” written by Alan Jacobs, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Humanities in the Honors College. Jacobs calls the idea of trigger warnings in college classes “hopelessly misbegotten.”
"Lex orandi, lex credendi" is a maxim which underlines the importance of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) in the traditions of the Anglican communion.
Commencing in Cranmer’s study at Croydon, Alan Jacobs, an Anglican and professor of Humanities at Baylor University in Texas, tells us how the BCP was assembled, challenged, proscribed by both Queen Mary (1553) and parliamentary puritans (1641), and restored, not without some controversy, by both Queen Elizabeth I (1559) and Charles II (1662).
Honors College students Jeff Cross (University Scholar, Honors Program) and Jonathan Keim (Baylor Interdisciplinary Core), and Honors College alumni Tawei Lin (University Scholar, Honors Program) and Jesus Sotelo (Honors Program) all won prestigious scholarships in 2014.
