Lecture looks at future of public universities
Christopher Newfield, who teaches American Studies at UC Santa Barbara, will talk about “The End of the Public University — and the Beginning of the Next” from 5 to 7:30 p.m. May 10 at UCSD.
Newfield’s current research focuses on higher education history; funding; and policy, culture and innovation; and the relation between culture and economics.
His presentation will be in the UCSD Robinson Auditorium at IRPS Robinson Complex. The event is the Elliott Memorial Lecture, presented annually by the UCSD Department of Literature, with the support of the Robert C. Elliott Memorial Fund, which was established at the time of professor Elliott’s death in April 1981.
