Last Lecture: ‘A Future Without Us’ by Chris Chulos
Special guest Chris Chulos, Associate Dean and Professor of History at Roosevelt University in Chicago(!) will give the first Last Lecture of the year. 👨🏫 In a Last Lecture, we ask the question: “If this is your last-ever lecture, what would you tell your audience?” Chris will tell us about his response in his lecture:
‘A Future Without Us: Academic Dreams, Professional Realities’.
Read Chris’s introduction below ⤵️
“Drawing on my research on the combination of old and new cultural practices among Russian peasants in the 19 th and early 20 th centuries—a process referred to as the sedimentary society in which newer cultural forms build upon older ones—I will reflect on the layers of my experiences that make up the essence of who I am today. When the sedimentary model is applied to our individual biographies, everything we do leaves traces in the human experience and can serve as inspiration and excitement about the potential we have to contribute to the sedimentary bedrock of history.”
If you want to ask him any questions about his UC you can too!
