This is Susan Albertine’s blog. It is devoted to liberal education and democracy. I should say liberal education for democracy. The past few years have shaken off any complacency, have kept me bracing and scrambling, trying to figure out what to say and do next. No better time to speak up, own my fears and blow past them, explore what it feels like and what it means to be blogging from–is it?–the edge of democracy. Withholding judgment on that, I am exploring.
Navigation tip: The “category” drop-down box below has a link to “Democracy.” That is where I am posting short-form observations, beginning with lessons I learned while traveling in Iran for two weeks in late 2016.
