Michael Berube: “The Humanities and the Boundaries of the Human” (Transylvania University: Oct. 28)

(I met Michael Berube a few times at Humanities/Social Sciences gatherings at the University of Illinois and he came over to guest lecture at ISU for one of Charlie Brown's literature courses that I was taking. A fierce intellect and critic, he was dedicated to supporting young scholars in their own development. He is fiercely political and was at the forefront of the late 20th Century cultural wars. He is still at it and is currently following the The National Insult My Intelligence Tour 2008. Notice courtesy of Anna Secor.)
