Congratulations to Richard Scully and Marcus K. Harmes, co-editors of the newly published Academia and Higher Learning in Popular Culture (Palgrave Macmillan). This collection brings together leading experts in different disciplines and from different national backgrounds to understand popular perceptions of higher learning as mediated through the tropes perpetuated via a multimedia landscape. This volume has been described as a “fascinating read” replete with “new insights into how to understand the academic world”. AHA member Ana Stevenson is a contributor. Congratulations to the editors and authors!
