Laramee, who streses the need for metaphor, narrative, humor, and silence; (6) "The Public/Academic Disconnect" by David W. Brown, who examines underlying causes of the declining public support for higher education; (7) "Making Things More Public: On the Political Responsibility of the Media Intellectual" by Jay Rosen, who considers the nature of public service for those who study mass communication; (8) "The Renewal of Civic Life: One College's Journey" by Joanne Cavallaro, who recounts the experience of the College of Saint Catherine (Minnesota) in engaging the issues of civic education and democratic action; and (9) "The Politics of Diversity and the Politics of Difference: Are Academics and the Public Out of Sync?" by David Mathews, who summarizes the issues raised in the previous papers.
