November 30, 2017Every few days we’ll be posting work featured in Salmagundi 197-198, just out, including essays from a feature on the politics and culture of the current academy. Look for pieces on appropriation, privilege, censorship, hate speech and the campus left by writers ranging from novelist Allan Gurganus to New York Times Magazine contributing writer Thomas Chatterton Williams and David Bromwich, Sterling Professor of English at Yale and author of Politics By Other Means: Higher Education & Group Thinking — the 1992 book that served as a wake up call about the contemporary university — which we revisit twenty-five years later in this feature.
