On Tuesday, I shall travel once more to New York City for the penultimate meeting of the course Todd Gitlin and I have been teaching at Columbia, after which he and I will appear at the panel discussion on graduate student unionization. It has been a rewarding experience, albeit tiring and sometimes stressful [apparently no flight into or out of LaGuardia Airport is ever on time.] The question naturally arises, Now what?
The Sociology Department at Columbia has been agreed that we shall teach the course again next Fall, but that leaves the two Spring semesters, of 2019 and 2020. This coming semester, I shall give a videotaped lecture at UNC entitled “A Game-Theoretic Critique of John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice,” and in the fullness of time, it will appear on YouTube.
I have also proposed, in a preliminary way, teaching a course at UNC in the Spring of 2020 entitled “Marx, Freud, Marcuse.” No indications yet whether there is any interest in the Philosophy Department.
Retirement is a drag.
