C/LS 10(1) Fall 2010

$30.00

The works brought together in this issue illustrate how scholars, artists, and public intellectuals produce work in conversation with the makers of history as a means to honor personal, critical, political, and/or artistic influences. Importantly, honoring is not simply or merely an act of veneration; significantly, it is a means to signal some of our most potent teachers and visionaries, the foundational texts in a curriculum of public pedagogy.
