See, for example, Saree Makdisi, ‘Edward Said and the Style of the Public Intellectual,’ in Edward Said: The Legacy of a Public Intellectual, eds. Ned Curthoys and Debjani Ganguly (Melbourne: Melbourne University Press, 2007), 21–35.
Said, Representations, 70–1, discussing Russell Jacoby, The Last Intellectuals: American Culture in the Age of Academe (New York: Basic Books, 1987).
For an exploration of the relationship between notions of profession, professorship and literature, see Jacques Derrida, L’Université sans condition (Paris: Galilée, 2001), a book that began life as lectures on the future of the university and the ‘humanities.'
Said, Orientalism ( New York: Vintage Books, 2003), 2–3.

‘The Virtuoso as Intellectual,’ Chapter 6 of On Late Style: Music and Literature against the Grain (New York: Pantheon Books, 2006), 132. That essay bemoans the fact that most intellectuals lack knowledge of music; comparably, Rokus de Groot concludes his interesting essay ‘Edward Said and Polyphony’ by saying ‘for music to serve as a model for humanistic emancipation, music education is essential.’ In Edward Said: A Legacy of Emancipation and Representation, eds. Adel Iskandar and Hakem Rustom (Berkeley, CA and London: University of California Press, 2010), 204–26. See too the ending of Said’s essay ‘The Book, Critical Performance, and the Future of Education,’ Pretexts: Literary and Cultural Studies 10, no. 1 (July 2001), 9–19.
Said, Musical Elaborations (London: Chatto & Windus, 1991), 98; quoted by Lindsay Waters, ‘In Responses Begins Responsibility: Music and Emotion,’ in Edward Said and the Work of the Critic: Speaking Truth to Power, ed. Paul A. Bové (Durham and London: Duke, 2000), 97–113.
Said, The Pen and the Sword: Conversations with David Barsamian (Edinburgh: AK Press, 1994), 77–8. Said makes a similar point in Representations, 88.
Gauri Viswanathan, Masks of Conquest (New York: Columbia, 1989), 2. See Said, Culture and Imperialism (first published 1993; London: Vintage, 1994), 42, 101, 109.

Poirier, The Renewal of Literature: Emersonian Reflections (London and Boston: Faber, 1987), 133–4.
Said, Humanism and Democratic Criticism (New York: Columbia, 2004), 53, 62–3. In the last quotation Said is presumably using the notion of academic ‘work’ as I have tried to use it throughout this chapter, to encompass teaching as well as criticism.
