Blogging the University

Just happened to notice Marc Bousquet’s How the University Works blog in my incoming links on Technorati. The blog is an outgrowth of his NYU Press book of the same title. Marc is an associate professor at Santa Clara University, where he teaches courses in radical U.S. culture, internet studies, and writing with new media.

There’s some interesting stuff here about the public role of universities and public perception of higher education, including a discussion of Harvard’s plan to lower tuition for middle-class and working-class students and an interview with Michael Berube about academic freedom (and David Horowitz), both ongoing topics of discussion in our field (in fact, the latter has recently been the subject of debate on the pages of the AJC in recent days).

Hoping to have more to say about Marc’s blog and the issues he raises in the future.
