A Presentation of the English Department's William J. and Yvonne Hyde Colloquium Series.
Dr. Bradley Butterfield, English Department faculty member, will continue the English Department's 2013-2014 William J. and Yvonne Hyde Colloquium Series with a presentation entitled "Who Are You and What Are You Doing in This Class? Huxley's Brave New World and the Pedagogy of the Personal." A century ago, President Woodrow Wilson suggested that higher education in the liberal arts should be reserved for society's elite. Was he right? Are all those pesky Gen Ed requirements a waste of time for tomorrow's work force? Come hear what the likes of Aldous Huxley, Sigmund Freud, Herbert Marcuse, Thomas Harris, Erich Fromm, Paul Fussell and Richard Rorty might have said about the relation between one's social class and one's college class in today's "brave new world." The presentation runs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 15th, in 113 Wimberly Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
