I start my new course on higher ed in film and fiction next week, and will be using the blog to continue thoughts on that, with my students coming in with their thoughts too. In tweaking the syllabus for the course, I notice how much the offerings are weighted toward the life of the professor. With the exception of Moo. That novel goes over a larger landscape of the land grant university, with its particular entourage of characters. Many of my students are in higher ed administration, and I am interested to see how film and fiction can illuminate their world and their work.
