Interview with Candice Tobin of Razorcake

Razorcake has posted my interview with Candice Tobin, which is in audio format. We had a great discussion.

We talked about class bigotry in higher education, of course. We also discussed contempt for working-class people among bourgeois conservatives and liberals. Other topics included the narrow outlook of academia, and ways that working-class people can fight to end class-based discrimination at American colleges.

If you’re new to this blog and want to learn about my resignation at Washington University and issues of class bias, this interview is a great starting point. Even if you’ve been visiting the blog for a while, you will find new discussion of my earlier writing and of the academic world in general.

You can listen here.

Thanks for reading (and listening).
