Teachers from throughout the University are invited to join Mark Edmundson, to discuss his September Harper's essay focusing on the effects of consumer pressures on liberal education (pp. 39-49). After presenting his perspective (3:00-3:20), Mark will engage in a dialogue with participants about the issues raised in the essay. Because the success of this exchange depends in great measure, of course, on discussants having read the essay, several copies will be available for perusal at the Teaching Resource Center, Hotel D, 24 East Range.
Discussion moderated by Jahan Ramazani, Professor of English & Chair of the Faculty Senate
