This full-year curriculum is intended as a no-cost alternative to current, more traditional textbooks in the field. It mixes materials rooted in real-world, contemporary communication scenarios, multimedia content, and online learning activities.The Grenzenlos curriculum ensures that the topics of discussion in the language classroom are relevant to and reflect today’s world.
This project was made possible with grant funding and due to the dedication of former librarian, Ron Joslin. Many additional library staff members including Jacki Betsworth and Erin Porter along with many student employees contributed to this project either by managing images or producing/editing videos and text.
A Material Education: The Art & Science of Stanton Sears - Intersections Series by the DeWitt Wallace Library

This series of e-books, entitled Intersections, will serve to highlight the interdisciplinary approaches of our faculty and students. Each e-book will feature Macalester faculty members who embody the interdisciplinary nature of the liberal arts in their teaching and scholarship.
A Material Education: The Art and Science of Stanton Sears is the exciting inaugural book of the series. The studio of Stan Sears gives us the ideal start to our exploration of the critical connections between arts and sciences at Macalester. As a teacher and artist, Sears employs mathematics, geometry, physics, biology, architecture, and engineering, along with his artistic vision. In one of many examples highlighted in A Material Education, students see first-hand how a fundamental understanding of the anatomy of a dragonfly and the physics of structural engineering were necessary inputs to the design and creation of a dragonfly-inspired street gate. They learn the importance of the theoretical grounding they receive in their mathematics and physics courses to creating beautiful and functional art.

Rupture of the Virtual is an examination of a concept of the material and the invaluable resources it offers for critical thinking today. In a multifaceted analysis, the book considers the theoretical reasons for the material’s exclusion from media theory and details the military origins of computing interface technologies, such as the Head-up Display and Augmented Reality, that enhance knowledge over the material. Rupture of the Virtual insists that a renewal of the material can be central to a critique of the virtual as a cultural condition.
