Olin Professor of English and American Studies Richard Slotkin is retiring from teaching at Wesleyan. Check out student video of his last day of teaching, which apparently was today (which is odd, because I’m pretty sure I’ve got AMST201 with him tomorrow afternoon). The Film Department brought in a mariachi band to celebrate:
The funniest part is definitely after 6:06… Slotkin suggests partying with tequila instead of champagne, and the person filming whispers, “Tequila shots with Slotkin!” You can feel his utter joy at the prospect.
Thanks, Gabriel Elder ’11!
