I haven’t read any of these yet, but the Chronicle Review’s tenth-anniversary What’s the Big Idea? forum features a good cast of characters, including Peter Singer, Parker Palmer, James Elkins, and others (including Jaron Lanier, of all people, writing about “The End of Human Specialness”). Nice to see my colleague Saleem Ali up there, too. (That, I think, is called a “shout out” nowadays. Hey, I was a DJ too, many moons ago.)

The other thing worth shouting out about is the upcoming National Day of Action to Defend Public Education, being organized by the AAUP for October 7. (You might get more of those kinds of announcements here as I get deeper into my new role as secretary of the faculty union.)
