Selected to showcase the range of public writing available to scholars, the essays are grouped into five topical sections: the Sokal hoax and its effects on the humanities; cosmopolitanism, American studies, and cultural studies; daily academic life inside and outside the classroom; the events of September 11, 2001, and their political aftermath; and the potential discursive and tonal range of academic blog writing. In lively and entertaining prose, Berube offers a wide array of interventions into matters academic and nonacademic. By example and illustration, he reminds readers that the humanities remain central to our understanding of what it means to be human.
Explorations in Critical Humanities: A Collection of Essays
This fall Roanoke College is inaugurating a new general education curriculum aptly named Intellectual Inquiry. In order to address the gap in perception between faculty and students on the importance of a core curriculum ("Why Do I Have to Take This Class?"), the D. L. Jordan Endowment for the Humanities solicited from Roanoke College faculty personal essays dealing with the significance of a core curriculum to their experience as students, citizens, and professors. The essays selected serve as a showcase for the Roanoke College faculty as a community of diverse and independent critical thinkers who connect their experiences to that of their students. Our hope is that these essays will inspire students to pursue their own education with greater vigor and self-reflection.
