As we gear ourselves up to greet the new academic year, now seems an appropriate moment to post something about the misbehaving students of the past...

You can find a podcast of a lecture about this here.

I'm happy to say that the students whom I teach are a million miles removed from the stuff I study in the fifteenth century.  But the message that the derogatory labels and stereotypes can stimulate and exacerbate the kind of behaviour they apparently condemn is still relevant I think.
