Professor of law and popular New York Times blogger Stanley Fish will speak at The University of Texas. His talk is titled "The Fugitive in Flight: Law, Faith, and Liberalism in a Classic TV Show."
Fish is among the most widely read and influential intellectuals in America today. His body of work in critical theory has changed the way scholars interpret texts ranging from John Milton's poem "Paradise Lost" to the U.S. Constitution. During the course of his distinguished career, Fish has contributed polemically to many of the nation's major political debates, ranging from the advent of political correctness and the changing role of higher education to questions of freedom, free speech, and the First Amendment.
Stanley Fish is the Davidson-Kahn Distinguished University Professor and a professor of law at Florida International University, and dean emeritus of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has also taught at the University of California at Berkeley, Johns Hopkins University and Duke University. He is the author of 10 books. His new book on higher education, "Save the World on Your Own Time," was published in 2008.
