For Thursday, October 18

  • Reading: Read "The Print Fetish" by Lee Bessette at Inside Higher Ed.
  • Reading Responses: What do you think it will take to move beyond the print fetish, or what I've called "the lingering hegemony of print." What has to change? How will it change? Why might it be considered a "fetish." Use the tags: reading response, print fetish, and any others that you wish. (Use all lower case for tags for consistency.) If you're up to it, you could post your response directly to the Inside Higher Ed blog. Just double-check what you've written before posting, with the awareness that a lot of other people might read your response and possibly respond to you, including the author.
