Arthur D. Kaledin
Professor Emeritus, of History and American Studies
Arthur D. Kaledin, Professor Emeritus, of History and American Studies, received his Ph.D. in 1965 from Harvard University. Professor Kaledin is finishing a book, Tocqueville and His America. He is also working on a collection of essays on Jefferson and his time. Another major project in process has grown out of his many years of teaching and studying the cultural history of 20th century America. It examines the many dimensions of American culture (popular, elite, folk, literary, regional, ethnic, technical) with an emphasis on how these have been, and are now, reflected in the cultural life of the American university. The main questions it deals with are: what has the cultural function of the American University been in the 20th century; what has it been thought to be; and what should it be?
