Promote this!

We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Louis Masur, for both his Tuesday evening presentation, displayed below, and his generous offer to spend the entire American Studies Day (Wednesday) with us for multiple sessions, including one on the music of Bruce Springsteen. Masur is the author of The Soiling of Old Glory and currently teaches at Trinity College.

In addition to hearing Masur’s keynote address on American Studies Day, students will engage with panel discussions which relate to the theme of the day, and which highlight student projects and research. We are also glad to include that day opportunities for the students to hear other professional speakers and artists, notably an AP photographer as well as the local blues band Mississippi Heat.

Masur's talk should last no longer than 90 minutes total (including questions from the audience).

The link for the social class graphic is HERE.

SO i took a look at the graphic you posted the link to. And I think there's a major problem with how it decides where you fall. My mom is a Vet that puts her at middle class for job, but the education need to attain that job she falls in the 99th percentile. I think there are some flaws with the method used to calculate your class.
