"The Future of Disciplinarity: The Case of Literature."
Louis Menand, professor of English at Harvard University, Pulitzer Prize winner and New Yorker writer, says trying to reform the university is like trying to get on the Internet with a typewriter. Author of The Marketplace of Ideas: Reform and Resistance in the American University, Menand talks about the future of the disciplines that have defined American higher education for 140 years.
