Jerry Fresia, thank you for a lovely response to my idea of videotaping lectures on Ideological Critique. As I turn this over in my mind, the following thought now emerges. I could announce a lecture series, perhaps under the auspices of the Philosophy Department, if they were willing. "A series of twelve public lectures on Ideological Critique by retired Professor Robert Paul Wolff, open to all members of the UNC Chapel Hill community." That sort of thing. Maybe on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. I would invite those who show up to follow along with the readings if they wish, but craft the lectures so that they do not require reading to be understood. If the Department were to make a classroom available, I would somehow arrange for the videotaping, and each Wednesday, the lecture would go up on YouTube [one can do this sort of thing, yes?]
Of course, someone would have to show up to make it work, but perhaps I could count on at least that. Maybe I should offer door prizes.
If I felt enormously ambitious -- this may be a bridge too far -- I could write up each lecture and post it on my blog.
Of course, if no one at all shows up, I shall have to allow my light to flicker and go out. [I am trying to think of some way to work in a remark about not giving a Tinker's damn, but inspiration fails me.]
