An essay by Randolph English professor Mara Amster has been included in the new book, Shakespeare and the 99%: Literary Studies, the Profession and the Production of Inequity (Palgrave Macmillan 2019).

Amster’s essay is entitled “’Instruct Her What She Has to do’: Education, Social Mobility, and Success.” Covering a range of topics from diverse positions and perspectives, the essays in the book confront and question foundational assumptions about higher education and society, including intellectual merit and institutional status. These essays comprise a timely conversation critical for understanding the teaching profession in “post-Occupy Wall Street” America.

Henry S. Turner, English professor at Rutgers University, hails the collection as “the smartest, most original, and most useful book on Shakespeare and the politics of higher education” that he has seen in many years, while Louise Geddes, English professor at Adelphi University, calls it “an important call to action for Shakespeare studies.”
