Students have a lot of interest in hearing what it was like, how unexpected it was. We really enjoyed meeting Dr. Jones, learning about his expertise and compelling personal story. The history department is among the very best, most diverse banks of expertise on campus, and his…

In that, beyond whatever disciplinary road you choose, you are already an adherent of your native language and will continue to study its literature. Nice meditation on reading that actually applies to everyone from the other Chronicle, The Ideal English Major: Real reading is reincarnation. There is no other way to put it. It is being born again into a higher form of consciousness than we ourselves possess. When we walk the streets of Manhattan…
