Marc came into my life in the Spring of 2016 when I took his “Social Movements” course. I’ll never forget his way of memorizing our names on the first day of class: making us line up with our nametags for a photo op. It was my first class with a large semester-long group project, but it was also the first time I was really granted academic freedom to choose a topic . . . and run with it. . . . His ability to reach his students in sometimes unorthodox ways has stayed with me since. He had this gag where he would pretend to telepathically transmit important pieces of the course material to us. This always got a few laughs, but most importantly, always made the knowledge ‘stick.’

These lines come from my tribute to Marc, “Remembering Marc William Steinberg,” published in _The Sophian_. You can read my full tribute here:
