Teaching the Professions

Jeffrey J. Williams


This essay argues that we should teach the professions. The author discusses in particular teaching the rise of the modern professions in conjunction with the development of the Anglo-American novel through the Victorian, modern, and contemporary periods. He also suggests readings from the history and theory of professions, showing how they build a fuller portrait of both the literature and the theory. Teaching the professions is a useful way to examine class. It also opens a way to look at the precarious condition of the professional managerial class today.
