So now I’m a council member of ERIP, LASA’s section on ethnicity, race, and indigenous peoples, and you can’t say I don’t do service. Ergo, 2020-2022: President, Louisiana Conference of AAUP; Vice-President, Feministas Unidas; Council, ERIP. The university does not value my views but these organizations do.
On being treated with disrespect: people who are feeling diminished should read this book and keep in mind that it doesn’t mean there should not be academic disciplines, or that there isn’t great value in in-depth subject knowledge.
I’m still going to send this paper to LACES, although I’ll have to write it first. I was going to send it there before I got elected to the council of the organization that publishes it but it is my current mode to change plans as little as possible.
