I'm torn about doing this post. On the one hand, I want this blog to stay focused on "Modern Medieval" or, perhaps better, how being a medievalist means that you can say something about the modern world. On the other hand, this seems an opportunity to do so -- especially as I've tried to talk about how the Humanities (and Liberal Arts, more generally) can indeed help us understand our world (see medieval shrimp factories, meaning of history, medieval "tolerance", on Seung-Hui Cho 1, and 2, etc.).
So, I'm going to do the post:
Read this post at New Kid on the University of Toledo. Then, go sign the petition.
There you go.
