Anti-Intellectualism: A Crash Course!
Room 208 Self Hall, 2:30 – 4:00 p.m.
Arguably one of the most important components of contemporary American culture--and yet one of the least recognized and understood--the slippery notion of "anti-intellectualism" is something all Americans should know more about, especially the faculty of a university. Dr. Michael Boynton will be sharing some of his latest research into American anti-intellectualism, including past research (or lack thereof), definitional challenges, potential theoretical frameworks, as well as examples of how this cultural prejudice against intellect impacts all of our lives (not to mention our teaching!)
