Thanks to this site for the picture!
So, I have been in mysterious places (see earlier entry about where Shimerprez is/was/might be) and am likely on my way back towards the Windy City soon. So, in addition to more entries coming from the Chicago area, the following are upcoming on Evocations:
1. Commentary on a (not new) book by Bill Readings entitled The University in Ruins
2. A question about the lineage of Shimer raised in the preface, by Donald N. Levine, to a book on the history of general education at the University of Chicago
3. Six degrees of Shimer examples to entertain us all
In the meantime, if you read this far, there are two things you could do for Shimer: (a) be in touch with James Bowers at admissions to see if there are ways to spread the word (his email is firstname.lastname@example.org) and (b) spread the words about this blog to everyone you know! The more that know about Shimer, the more likely we are to be able to (help) change their lives!
