la vie des idées

From Michele Lamont: a note that la vie des idées, a French website that seeks to provide a portrait of our current intellectual life through interviews, essays, and public debates, now has an English-language version: Books and Ideas. It’s wonderful. There are videos of lectures by Nancy Fraser on Feminism and Capitalism, reviews of the the works of scholars like Viviana Zelizer, and interviews with Howard Becker. There are also plenty of less American things on there.  Definitely worth checking out. A wealth of online material, and an interesting combination of blog, journal, popular reviews (like the NY Review of Books), and online community that might just be the future of how academic ideas are presented and disseminated.
