Eph Russell is an English professor up for tenure. He may look and sound privileged, but Eph is right out of gun-rack, Bible-thumping rural Alabama. His beloved Devon, though, has become a place of warring tribes, and there are landmines waiting for Eph that he is unequipped to see. The cultural rules are changing fast.Lulu Harris is an entitled freshman - er, firstyear -from Manhattan. Her singular ambition is to be a prominent socialite - an "It Girl." While most would kill for a place at Devon, to her college is a dreary impediment. She is pleasantly surprised to find some people she can tolerate in the Fellingham Society, a group of self-professed campus monarchists. When things become socially difficult, Lulu is forced to re-channel her ambition in a most unexpected way - as a militant feminist. In the process, she and Eph will find their fates at odds.Also in the mix is Red Wheeler, who is in his seventh year at Devon, and is carefully managing his credits to stay longer. As the alpha dog atop Devon's progressive hierarchy, Red is the most "woke" guy on campus. But when his position is threatened, he must take measures.All paths collide in a riotous climax. Campusland is a timely and gleeful skewering of the modern American campus and its tribal culture.
