Details

William Deresiewicz taught at Yale University for ten years before leaving academia to become a full-time writer. His bestselling books include A Jane Austen Education (Penguin) and Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life (Free Press), described by Leon Wieseltier as "a withering analysis of the transactional spirit that rules American education and American life, and an inspiring example of a better ideal". In his visit to the Humanities Center, Deresiewicz continues his critique of higher education with a lecture on the "College and the Urge to Save the World".
