Lobstergirl Great idea for a list. I feel like there are hundreds we're missing.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) There must be! So many great places of learning ... there's no way they didn't leave their imprint on the cities where they're located -- and on literature, of course. And it's not just the likes of Harvard and Yale, or Oxbridge and the Sorbonne for that matter!

And then: I certainly don't want to flaunt anything, but I've purposely listed a few books by teachers who have particularly impacted me, because I can't think of university without thinking of these teachers as well. God knows not every prof is a "born" (or even a halfway decent) teacher, but undoubtedly some of them are -- and some are impressive personalities into the bargain, though I'd rather have a great teacher than an impressive personality for a prof -- and their universities are the richer for them as well. For purposes of this list, that's really all that should matter. If you can't think of university without remembering a given person (and that person happens to have published something), that's really all it takes for their name to belong on this list ...

I have put two classics of the English Public School, the ramp up to the gentile British education (which in my case I have not got).

Wish I could think of more like Smiley's "Moo", expositions of the middle-American cow college.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) FWIW, I've started creating a series of lists for individual universities:

Oxford University: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...
Cambridge University: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...
Cornell University: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...
Iowa Writers' Workshop: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...
Università di Bologna: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...
Bonn University: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...

More to come in due course. If anybody feels like pitching in, though, by all means go ahead!

Lobstergirl I just noticed this one for Scripps College Faculty and Alums:

Lobstergirl And there's University of Chicago Law School - Faculty:
http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/34...

and Univ. of Chicago alumni:
http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/21...


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Oh yes, cool -- thanks for mentioning those!

C Just thought I would add Starter for Ten because it is very funny and a great read

I'm not familiar with it, but if it reminds you of university, by all means go ahead! (There's a tab up top next to "all votes" -- using that tab, everybody can add books to a list.)

message 11: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl A Separate Peace is set at a high school. Is the list limited to post high school education?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Definitely post-high school only (and sorry for the belated reply). Removed.


message 13: by Lobstergirl (new)
