Marcial González, Greg Meyerson, and Richard Ohmann worked together on these three articles. We spoke on a panel organized by the Radical Caucus of the Modern Language Association for MLA's 2014 convention. Our topic was “Teaching About the 1%, the Rich, the Upper Class, the Ruling Class . . . . " As that list suggests, we meant to explore common ways of conceptualizing the wealthiest people in the U. S., and in capitalist society generally. We argued that the best way is to see them structurally, as integral to a class system. And we sketched out ways for teachers to do that.
