The last president of Shimer College - Windy City Times

Monday, June 19, 2017

Since packing up and moving has been a part of Shimer's institutional history, Henking at first looked upon it with a degree of pragmatism."[Shimer] moved from Mount Carroll to Waukegan to Bronzeville and now Naperville," she stated. "So, on the one hand, the people of the institution are used to change. In this one [Shimer] gave up its autonomy. For everyone involved there's a sense of loss and gain. Every generation of students has its own version of the college. They're running a committee this summer to figure out how to be a part of a new institution but still recognizably Shimer."Henking's voice trailed off as if there was something she wanted to add but that she censored perhaps for the sake of formality. The interview was only ten minutes old."Over the course of a lifetime, I have come to understand that I cannot pursue ideas alone," she told to Perry Garfinkel and the New York Times in 2013. "Nor can I strive to change the world unless I engage others, whether those who spit on me or those with whom I share my life. I still wrestle with the tensions of differences and uncertainty. As Shimerians say, we steer between reality and utopia."Henking's reality began in 1955 in the small Pennsylvania town of Paoli long before it was annexed as a Philadelphia suburb."My parents met in World War II," she recalled. "My mother was an Irish Protestant. My father was an Irish Catholic. So, it was to the great dismay of some family members. But it was a reasonably happy family. My father was a printer and manual laborer his whole life. My mom was a secretary. We lived in a less wealthy area but I went to good public schools."Serving in World War II had left Henking's father disenchanted with Catholicism. So, she and her elder sister were raised under what she called the "social justice" Protestantism of her mother. It had polar effects on the siblings. While her sister became one of the earliest female Episcopalian Priests, it was as an undergraduate student at Duke University that Henking discovered "I actually and actively hated religion.""My sister and I used to joke that she took God and I took everything else," Henking said.Yet, she decided to major in Religious Studies."I was trying to understand why people are religious," she asserted. "I had emerged from a religious setting to be pretty hostile and fascinated by it. I got very interested in theoretical explanations for why people would believe what I thought was patently untrue. For some, religion is the source of dramatic happiness and social change. For others, it's horrifyingly oppressive and can really hurt people."Despite relishing the academic challenges her chosen course of study provided, Henking recalled having "an emotionally difficult time in college. My parents raised me to think I could do anything I wanted to which turned out not to be true. My father thought I was perfect. Most of the rest of the world does not think that about me or about anyone else."She was in the midst of both the seventies and "a hotbed of lesbian feminism"?also known as the Research Triangle of Duke, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.The journal Feminary emerged from Chapel Hill."We want to encourage feminist and lesbian organizing in a region whose women suffer greatly in their lack of political power," it's publishers wrote. "We want to provide an audience for Southern lesbians who may not think of themselves as writers but who have important stories to tell?stories that will help to fill the silences that have obscured the truth about our lives and kept us isolated from each other. We want to know who we are. We want to change women's lives.""I can intellectualize anything," Henki...
