I am home from my fourth trip to teach at Columbia, and it is beginning to feel comfortingly usual. The waiter in the food court of Terminal C at LaGuardia has learned of my fondness for pancakes and greets me like a regular.
Needless to say, I have been mesmerized by l’affaire Kavanaugh and await the Senate testimony in an hour with anticipation. Speaking as an amateur observer, it does not surprise me at all that a man might be both a serious scholar, athlete, church goer, and professed teenage virgin and also a mean drunken sexual abuser.
However, be that as it may, I thought I would post the two handouts I prepared for my class and distributed on Tuesday. Since my first stint is now ended, and Todd Gitlin picks up the mantle next week, I prepared for my students a list of my writings on Marx, both published and unpublished, should they decide they could not get enough of me. This is the first handout:
