We have learned a lot from these revisionist interpretations of American history. Yet the fixation with social history has led to a severe case of tunnel vision among American historians, an almost exclusive preoccupation with the exploited and victimized, along with an oppressive orthodoxy about what kinds of courses should be taught and who should be hired at universities. For most historians, however, borderlands has assumed a limited geographical designation: a study of Latin American mostly Mexican immigration to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
This migration has obviously had a significant effect on American politics and society. But such a restrictive focus on a particular region and ethnic group does not encourage a recognition of the broader participation of the United States in the emergence of a global culture. Of course, if students want to learn more about American culture, they can choose a class in art, film or American literature.
Chilling facts about the Arctic
But because most universities require courses in American history, the indifference to culture among historians has had devastating consequences for the quality of American education. How can students be expected to have heard of any preeminent American artists and actors if their history professors never mention them in class?

Universities are turning out students who can tell you about midwives, sharecroppers and blue-collar workers but not about architects, poets or symphony conductors. But maybe the situation in our universities, if not in our history departments, is not quite so bleak. For one thing, non-academics such as Neal Gabler and Richard Schickel continue to write about the history of American culture. Students read the books of these authors. Some start with a tad of fact, filled in with fiction, parodies of life and memories of dogs and horses that were part of me.

Also by Donald R. The pre-interview drives me insane. If they've already decided the outcome, why don't I just hand in an essay? Maybe if we talk we'll find something out. I'd rather just have an awkward pause. Still, he is capable of taking a stand. He spoke up in favour of the Occupy movement and got in a bit of trouble for joining a student march against university- fee increases in and supporting the protests against tuition fees so vocally not impartial enough for someone who works for the BBC, apparently.
He opens up a marvellous opportunity for me to mention the unmentionable. Does he feel remorse for that stage invasion incident at the Brits in now that he's engaged with the Arctic and other environmental issues? After all, Michael Jackson was merely giving an epic performance of "Earth Song", presumably directing our attention to the strife of the planet. And if so, can you explain what a derivative and future are?
In his sign-off, the prime minister says: "There we are.

I saw him led away. I saw his bum.
So therefore the fact he says he's seen it totally negates the credence of what he said in the previous part of the answer about derivatives and futures. I'm glad I've got that off my chest — it's been bothering me, that. Not, you understand, that Jarvis wants us all to be squeaky clean and incapable of general rascality — a term coined by philosopher Alan Watts, of whom he's a fan. Everybody is out for themselves, really, but that shouldn't mean that everything needs to get messed up.
And if everything goes down the pan environmentally, then of course none of that could happen.

We wouldn't have time for that inherent iffy-ness in a post-apocalyptic landscape, would we? This is eco logic, but not as we know it. So let me get this straight, Jarvis: you want to protect the earth to give shadiness the proper space it deserves? If Jarvis seems more flippant than your usual eco warrior it's probably also a defence mechanism. Those with a high profile have to be prepared for some derision if they extol eco credentials while continuing to live a comfortable celebrity lifestyle.
Even his Cape Farewell expedition, for which he did relatively little publicity at the time, caused one music critic to refer to him as the "Indie Sting". That over-earnestness is a bit of a problem with people in bands and celebrities or whatever.

All I can say is I feel a bit of a personal involvement in the Arctic because I've been to that part of the world. According to Sauven at Greenpeace, its new campaign will require unprecedented global public support, and we will have less than three years to come together to avoid catastrophic ecosystem destruction.
We urgently need this to happen globally. Might Britpop's chronicler of contemporary life be one day remembered more for fighting off bulging-eyed Arctic plunderers than for "Common People"?
It's not going to be me or any one individual — it takes everybody for things to change. I'll try my best. To support Greenpeace's campaign, text Arctic to ; greenpeace. Last year saw sea-ice levels plummet to the second-lowest since records began.
