Isserman Offers Expert Comment in Chronicle of Higher Education

Maurice Isserman, the James L. Ferguson Professor of History, was quoted in a Nov. 27 Chronicle of Higher Education article about a national campaign of student debt refusal.  In “Debt Protesters Denounce Colleges for Broken Promises,” Isserman said the Occupy Wall Street movement has rubbed off on college students, who have taken the protest in their own direction.


Identified in the article as an expert on political activism at Hamilton, Isserman noted, “The movement's famous lack of specific demands is actually more of a strength than a weakness.”  He continued, “What Occupy Wall Street has done is galvanize a sense of collective resentments. What has been felt by millions of students as a private burden suddenly is seen in a new light.”
