My last entry was rather negative, and I don't want to give off the wrong impression of my students. Aside from the fact that they don't know what a historian is, I have been consistently impressed with how smart, interested, and dedicated they are. One first-year student even correctly used the word "hegemony" in a sentence. I certainly didn't know that word when I was eighteen! I guess the real question is, does she understand its Gramscian meaning?

But did she pronounce it correctly? It's the pronunciation of "hegemony" that always trips me up....
