Brown, David W., Ed.
Nine articles discuss the nature and structure of public scholarship. The articles are: (1) "Divided No More" by Parker J. Palmer, who urges academics to act publicly on their convictions; (2) "The Public Intellectual as Transgressor?" by William M. Sullivan, who urges the reinvention of a "public" orientation to intellectual life within higher education; (3) "Public Scholarship" by Jay Rosen, who describes the Project on Public Life and the Press and urges both journalists and scholars to learn more about public life by leading public lives; (4) "In Whose Favor Am I Teaching?" by Janice L. Lucas, who uses an experience with a student to illustrate the need to go beyond the curriculum in addressing private issues that have become public problems; (5) "The Public Scholar Who Never Was" by James Norment, who questions the graduate training system for its avoidance of the essential tensions in personal and public reflection; (6) "Academic Professionalism and the New Public Mindedness" by Maria M. Farland, who offers evidence of an interest in the public by academics; (7) "Education for Political Life" by Alejandro Sanz de Santamaria, a professor in Colombia, who regrets a life divided between the academy and the community; (8) "Marketing the Mind" by Robert F. Gish, who expresses concern about the adoption of corporate management, production, and marketing strategies by universities; and (9) "Inventing Public Scholarship" by David Mathews, who considers the meaning of public scholarship from various viewpoints.
