Name of the Document: “The Big Uneasy: What’s roiling the liberal-arts campus?”

Location: The New Yorker

Context: editorial featuring Oberlin as an example of contemporary “PC culture” on liberal arts college campuses

Potential relevance for the future: The article’s use of Oberlin as a microcosm for contemporary youth and their politics from an outsider’s perspective could be used as a means of interrogating the perceived divide between “PC culture” and others, most extremely seen in Trump supporters and the alt-right

Other relevant headings: PC culture, student activism, trigger warning, safe space, alt-right
