(I thought of “I’ll Think About It And You’ll Listen”)

Isaiah Berlin and Liberty

Women of the 18th Century Salon (I thought Wonder Women)

Are There Limits to the Other? The Ethics of Cultural Relativism (I know Ican’t use Clifford Geertz’ “The Drunken Indian” but how inappropriately catchy)

Had lots of fun reading your comments, everyone, though I can imagine it would be better in the evening after wine.

Many thanks,
EB

I should say, though, the actual course title I had in mind for our weary workhorse was “Western Civ Cliche Enemas for Political Prisoners.” Might as well leave the Enlightenment alone.

On economy in course nomenclature: when I was a senior, way back wev, I eased back on the history major stuff with a last semester of all art classes, including a popular combo with my art major friends of Beginning Ceramics and also Photography. This parlay was popularly known among the freaks as “Pots and Shots.” All nouns, no adjectives, change from a dollar bill.

Contract THAT, somebody…

The “This, that, and the other thing” kind of course description is lazy. Noun and adjective (or, I presume en Anglais, adjective and noun) is much more difficult.

I can’t even think how to describe my courses with ONE noun and ONE adjective. “Sexual servitude?”

One of my students wrote a dissertation on miscegenation in slave societies and called it “Who’s My Daddy?”
