"Reform and Resistance in the American University: A Conversation with Louis Menand"
Humanities Lecture Series : Conversation

Fri., Nov. 18, 2011, 10:00am - 11:30am
Location: Hall Center Conference Hall

Louis Menand is one of those rare individuals who straddles the line between successful academic and popular cultural critic. Perhaps best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Metaphysical Club (2001), a history of late 19th and early 20th century American thought, the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of English at Harvard University has also written extensively about other cultural milestones in the formation of an American intellectual identity.

His most recent publication is The Marketplace of Ideas: Reform and Resistance in the American University (2010), and his current research project is a cultural history of the Cold War. Along with his Humanities Lecture Series presentation, Menand will participate in a more informal question and answer session, "Reform and Resistance in the American University: A Conversation with Louis Menand."
