in which I sum up my posts on the recent controversies in academia – Snakes and Ladders
"I have been trying for a while now, and in multiple locations, to articulate an argument about recent modes of student disaffection in American universities. I think there is a bright, strong thread linking the “trigger warning” debates of last year with the student protests of this year. In an ideal world I’d turn these thoughts into a short book, or at least a very long article, but for now I’m just going to have to link the posts together into a virtual unity."

No Crisis: A LARB Special Series - The Los Angeles Review of Books
"“No Crisis” is a Los Angeles Review of Books special series considering the state of critical thinking and writing — literary interpretation, art history, and cultural studies — in the 21st century. A new installment to the series will be released at the beginning of each month through the fall of 2015. Our aim, as our introductory essay explains, is to "show that the art of criticism is flourishing, rich with intellectual power and sustaining beauty, in hard times.""
