Did any ex students ever do this?
Not just any lecturer, but one of the ones who actually seemed to care a little about what they were teaching.
Such a bad idea in some ways (hello bleary eyes and sore head this morning), but a great one in others.
We have a fairly young International Relations lecture, who's a real hardcore philosophical anarchist (think Bakunin, Proudhon, that kinda thing), and we dragged him out to the union bar after our last lecture yesterday. It was really good fun, strangely enough. Highlights included him slagging off two of my classmates, calling Gramsci and Marx 'pilfering cunts', and telling us about not only the time he studied under Scott Thomas and Ken Booth (big shit if you like IR) but also how he used to work as a chef in Australia, and went to see Spiceworld: The Movie on acid. Genuinely interested in what we had to say and in making us argue about anything or everything. And then tried to make us join the IWW (anarchist worldwide union). Plus he bought me two pints which are currently threatening to make me go back to bed.
What were your lecturers like at uni? Anyone famous? Any fun stories?
