Fall 2015 Book Selections:
The Humanities, Higher Education & Academic Freedom: Three Necessary Arguments
by Michael Berube and Jennifer Ruth
"This book is a lively, passionate defense of contemporary work in the humanities,
and, beyond that, of the university system that makes such work possible. The book's
stark accounts of academic labor, and its proposals for reform of the tenure system,
are novel, controversial, and timely.
The first book discussion will be held on Thursday, September 10th at 9:00 am. The group will be discussing the book's Introduction: "This is Not the Crisis Your Looking For."
