The Point: Labor and Democracy

11/2/2020

I cannot too often repeat that Democracy is a word the real gist of which still sleeps, quite unawakened, notwithstanding the resonance and the many angry tempests out of which its syllables have come, from pen or tongue. It is a great word, whose history, I suppose, remains unwritten because that history has yet to be enacted.

--Walt Whitman

Greetings, Colleagues:

We send you warmest wishes and the steadfast hope that you are experiencing good health and some measure of peace in your life.

The Point: Fanfare for the Common Good

9/14/2020

In which we argue against the easy fixes of “drive-by diversity” in favor of a profound mobilization across the communities of interest—students, faculty, staff, community members—that should run this university.

Greetings, Colleagues,

For those of us working in higher education everything is up for grabs, isn’t it? 

I mean even figuring out how to start an email to a colleague is not a simple task: “hope this finds you well” seems problematic at best.
