Peter Wood Made Regular Contributor to Huffington Post

National Association of Scholars

We are pleased to announce that NAS president Peter Wood has been made a regular contributor to the Huffington Post. Peter’s articles on intellectual culture and higher education—with a good deal of wit and playfulness mixed in—will help NAS to reach a wider audience and promote our name recognition.

Peter’s most recent article, “Godzilla vs. Godot,” likens the current higher education system to an overgrown, appetitive monster. You can read it, and his other contributions, on his author page.

As an author, Peter’s prominence on the site depends on reader activity and interaction. Huffington Post sorts and displays articles to viewers using an algorithm that considers how active an author’s page is. We invite you to click on Peter’s articles, leave comments, like and share them on Facebook and Twitter, and email them to friends who may be interested. On his author page, you can even become a “fan” of Peter by clicking on the red “fan” button (with a heart on it), and sign up to receive an email notification each time he writes.  

Actively engaging with Peter’s work is one way that you can help to promote NAS and make Peter’s articles more visible on Huffington Post. Please take a moment to read and share his work.
