Our Mission

“There is an invisible line eighteen inches ahead of the front row in far too many classes at Brown: the instructor is on one side, the students on the other. Information flows from front to back, and rarely the other way. Both students and instructors must make a conscious effort to erase this line, for teaching and learning to be most effective “

- Christopher M. Anderson
Editor-in-Chief of the Critical Review, 1995

Inclusivity and Representation

Brown University community members using The Critical Review should take into consideration that all reviews are composed by and based on views, information, and opinions expressed by students who are subject to biases. The Critical Review does not verify for accuracy any of the information contained in reviews. Our primary purpose is to educate and inform. We are constantly striving to be more inclusive and representative in the work we publish. If you have any feedback, questions, or comments, please feel free to reach out to critical_review@brown.edu.
