Universities are in trouble. They face some tough choices about how to survive in our uncompromising times. In a series of stinging analyses this book tackles these issues head on. It argues that it's not enough to blame market forces or the indifference of politicians: academics can often be their own worst enemies. Universities are increasingly profit-driven, and the faculty seems increasingly passive in the face of political and economic pressures. This book examines the current sorry state of higher education and offers 'alternative futures' for the academy, visions that involve academic organizations, public outreach through the internet, faculty unionization, and campus organizing. Office Hours is a roll-up-your-sleeves look at the avoidable disaster facing the modern university. 'Straightforward, unpretentious, immensely readable, and on matters of extreme urgency to a very wide potential readership.' --Bruce Robbins, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University 'Office Hours is always pointed, often poetic and amusing, and never dull. Nelson and Watt accurately diagnose the serious malady that threatens American higher education, and then suggest the cure. Do read this book-it's a tonic.' --Jane Buck, President, American Association of University Professors 'Straightforward, unpretentious, immensely readable, and on matters of extreme urgency to a very wide potential readership' - Bruce Robbins, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University 'Office Hours is always pointed, often poetic and amusing, and never dull.

In creating [this book], [the editors'] aim has been twofold--to better address the ways instructors want to teach literature today and to better inspire in students the desire and skills to engage literature critically ... [The authors] focus students on the necessary skills to perform close readings and to think critically about literary works. Each genre section starts with discussions of the basic, formal elements students need to understand and analyze literature. You will find discussions of reading fiction and drama for plot construction, narrative point of view, characterization, setting, tone, style, symbolism, and irony. Students will benefit from our discussions of understanding poetry in terms of its formal presentation of word choice, imagery, figurative language, sound sense, irony, paradox, rhyme and rhythm, and stanza form. These formalist practices continue to be essential skills that introductory students must master as requisites to understanding and enjoying literature ... [This book] encourages and supports students to explore ways in which literature engages with critical understandings of nationalism, race, gender, sexuality, global multiculturalism, and other cultural and political frames.-Pref.
