>This is response to the now-viral video I linked to in an earlier post. This one is kinder, gentler, and more idealistic — except when it takes a few jabs at the earlier video. It’s also a lot more like the actual conversations I have with actual students. And bonus: it makes a Dr. Who reference. It’s also really inspiring and I think that every time I get in a funk about the future of the university and especially the humanities, I’m going to watch this to recharge myself.
You should watch it, too.

I’m posting this not only because I like it, but also especially for Jeffrey, meg, Flavia, and Clarissa, all of whom I know didn’t like the original, cynical version (or, in meg’s case, didn’t like the emerging genre of xtranormal videos in which experience berates naivete).
