Episode 4: Stanley Fish—Part 1

LCLC Oral History

01-11-2021 • 23 mins

In this episode Conference Director Matthew Biberman talks with Stanley Fish. First rising to prominence as the Milton scholar who unknowingly inaugurated that branch of literary theory later dubbed "reader-response criticism," Fish then spearheaded a critique of liberalism, transforming him into a key early proponent of CLS (critical legal studies). Fish's analysis of first amendment law and matters of free speech has had a sustained influence on American culture and legal practice, with the rise of "critical race studies" being but one indirect result of these pathbreaking interventions.
