Last night [in Williamstown] I was seated next to a guy named Daniel in the class of ‘07. I said “What are you going to do next?” and his plan is to go to South America. He felt he should experience another culture. He’s an economics major. I said, “You are pursuing what a professor of ours pioneered here years ago, pursuit of “The Other,” capital T, capital O.” I don’t know that he’d heard about “The Other,” but he’s certainly heard about Prof. Gaudino 30 years later. “You’re about to immerse yourself in a culture you’re not familiar with for the value to you of doing so.” He knew it would be a good thing for him.
