About the Author

Kathleen Fitzpatrick is the director of Digital Humanities and a professor of English at Michigan State University. She is the author of Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy and The Anxiety of Obsolescence: The American Novel in the Age of Television.


"An inspiring and convincing look at how anyone involved in higher education can nurture generosity and help integrate their institutions into their communities to further the public good... With its call for generosity and community-building that is potentially revolutionary, Kathleen Fitzpatrick's Generous Thinking is an indispensable addition to conversations on the state of higher education today."

--Rebecca Hussey "Foreword Reviews "

"For anyone concerned with the future of higher education, Fitzpatrick makes a passionate argument for a simple yet potentially revolutionary idea."

--Library Journal

"Generous Thinking offers us a plan to move our national thinking about higher education in a way that enlivens our democracy."

--Richard A. Greenwald, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Fairfield University "The Baffler "

"Fitzpatrick's book Generous Thinking: A Radical Approach to Saving the University is one important step toward recovering the lost value of the university... Her work, which clearly demonstrates how to think generously in the academy, can help make the case for increased public investment in higher education."

--Roopika Risam "Public Books "
