Resources for July 12, 2015

Williard, David C. "On Teaching the Confederacy." Inside Higher Ed (July 6, 2015)

Martin, James. "Finding God in All Things." On Being (December 18, 2014) ["Before Pope Francis, James Martin was perhaps the best-loved Jesuit in American life. He’s followed the calling of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order, to “find God in all things” — and in 21st-century forms. To delve into Fr. Martin's way of being in the world is to discover the "spiritual exercises" St. Ignatius designed to be accessible to everyone more than six centuries ago."]

Hempton, Gordon. "The Last Quiet Places: Silence and the Presence of Everything." On Being (December 25, 2014) ["Silence is an endangered species, says Gordon Hempton. He defines real quiet as presence — not an absence of sound, but an absence of noise. The Earth, as he knows it, is a 'solar-powered jukebox.' Quiet is a 'think tank of the soul.'"]

Johnson, Chalmers. "Sorrow of Empire: Imperialism, Militarism, and the End of the Republic." Asia Papers #19 (2004)

Garfield, Bob. "The Numbers Don't Lie, Except When They Do." On the Media (July 10, 2015) ["the media's sloppy and disingenuous use of polls to fill air time and manufacture conflict."]

Varoufakis, Yanis. "How I Became an Erratic Marxist." The Guardian (February 18, 2015) ["Before he entered politics, Yanis Varoufakis, the iconoclastic Greek finance minister at the centre of the latest eurozone standoff, wrote this searing account of European capitalism and how the left can learn from Marx’s mistakes."]

Cowie, Peter. "Flashback: Alain Resnais." The Current (March 23, 2014)
