Our President's New Book

<p>One of the windows into an educational institution is to look at who is leading it. In Wesleyan's case, our president, Michael Roth, is a distinguished scholar and teacher, and he has a new book out which explores history, memory and trauma. Here's the link: Memory</a>, Trauma, and History</p>

<p>I haven't read his book, but, President Roth is making his voice heard in other ways, particularly where it concerns higher education. In addition to his regular contributions to the Huffington Post Michael</a> Roth he keeps a regular blog on the Wesleyan website which he's not afraid to use as a bully pulpit:<a href="http://roth.blogs.wesleyan.edu/2011/11/15/exercising-a-degree-of-freedom-which-rarely-exists/?ref_homepage%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://roth.blogs.wesleyan.edu/2011/11/15/exercising-a-degree-of-freedom-which-rarely-exists/?ref_homepage&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>
