Alumni and Faculty in the News: Links.

Some links about alumni and faculty:

1. Young Jean Lee (who visited the Department as a Distinguished Alumna last Spring) has a new play out, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Lear.   It has gotten a lot of attention from critics of all stripes who have been polarized over the piece.  A sample of reviews can be found at the following links:

New York Times

The New Yorker

2. Professor Scott Saul is making his own press as a commentator on the recent death of J. D. Salinger.  The blog for the SFWeekly quotes Professor Saul in their piece on the significance of J. D. Salinger, and you can hear an conversation with him on the same topic here.
