[Xmca-l] Re: Public intellectuals



I'm sure that these essays escaped your notice.....I've been urging more academics to write for the public since my appointment to the AERA committee on communication and outreach about 5 years ago. In case anyone's interested, in these essays (written to promote more public writing), I give reasons why we should, and why we don't, take on this task.

Please see below in the link a clever response to Krystof's piece. It is still a very USA centered debate. It would be interesting to hear a bit how it resonates in other countries. As for Chile university profs are quite engaged in public debate, specially those in the social sciences. Many of them are more invested there than in the mainstream academic media, which is not necesarilly good as the connection between research and public discourse weakens.
