    Latke or Hamentasch?

    W.J.T. Mitchell, the Gaylord Donnelley Distinguished Service Professor in English Language & Literature, defended latkes during the 53rd Latke Hamentasch Symposium. Mitchell, who is editor of Critical Inquiry and a well-known author and scholar of art, literature, mass media and visual culture, is pictured here preparing his defense of the potato pancakes during a rehearsal just before the event.
