Paul Schue: The College as a Custodian of Non-Monetary Values

October 16, 2018, 7:00 pm9:00 pm

Northland College history professor and students

An examination of the historical role of colleges and universities as repositories and custodians of cultural values, their relationship to capitalism, and the threats to higher education today.

Paul Schue has taught World, European, and Middle East History at Northland College since 2001. He holds a doctorate in modern European history from the University of California, Irvine, as well as degrees in history from the Pennsylvania State University and Macalester College. His current research is on the history of the mind/body split and the ways that conceptions of mind and body have shaped everything in our society from criminal law to voting rights, from military service to medicine, and how the next one hundred years are going to change it all profoundly.

This talk is part of the Presidential Inauguration Faculty Speaker Series. Visit here for a full Inauguration Week schedule.
