Thin posting this week because we're in exams.

And on that subject, a conversation today:

[Student is considering which essay question to choose. He is asking about this question:

1. Modern life, for all its connections to the past, offered Americans a series of profound changes. Explain the power of modernity, and responses to it.]
Student: So, if I write this one, I can discuss modernity as an intellectual force as well as a set of social and cultural changes, right?

Me: Yes.

I can't wait to read that. Sometimes teaching is like eating a huge ice cream sundae with a cherry on top. And fudge sauce. And maybe some caramel, too. Yes, that good.
