Michael Bérubé Reviews The New Education

Chicago Journal, Critical Inquiry," 1.18

Book review by Michael Bérubé of Cathy Davidson's The New Education. He calls it "a visionary book" shadowed ("haunted" would be too melodramatic) by a dour, even desperate book. The happy book is a story of inventive, iconoclastic professors (like Davidson herself) working at institutions ranging from Stanford University to LaGuardia Community College, from Arizona State to Georgetown, devising radically interdisciplinary courses and curricula that put information technology, collaboration, and crowdsourcing to intellectually stimulating and socially productive ends."
