literature meme | [1/3] GENRES: Campus Novel or Academic Novel
"Personally I am in favour of education but a university is not the place for it."
(The Invention of Love, Tom Stoppard)
Campus novels exploit the closed world of the university setting, with characters inhabiting unambiguous hierarchies. They may describe the reaction of a fixed socio-cultural perspective (the academic staff) to new social attitudes (the new student intake). (×)
