Below is a copy of the emailed I wrote in response to an email I receive from Colleague Tami Gold about the James Aronson Awards for Social Justice Journalism. T-Gold is the self-appointed director of the awards, replacing Erstwhile Colleague Peter Parisi who retired a while back. The Awards Ceremony has been moribund for years. T-Gold believes she can breathe some kind of life into it. She shares her position with an adjunct who asked that I not mention her name in any of Hunter-L postings. And, for now, I’m am following that adjunct’s wishes for now regarding this blog site.

Hunter-L is a primary listserv for inter-community information at Hunter College, City University of New York. The listserv use to be robust. Dynamic. Inclusive. Opened to students. But like a lot of things at Hunter, it has waned over the last five years, dumbed down by the Powers That Be who embrace the insipid.

Attention Colleague Bill Herman: The Center for Communication, Inc. Use to Be a Gold Mine of Support for D:F/M Students

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Regarding your fm-l post about the “great” programs of the Center for Communication, Inc. Copy of your post is below. But first, history and context.

Shouldn’t students be informed about the demise of the innovative relationship between the department and the Center for Communication, Inc. when it scheduled numerous panels and events on the Hunter campus, mostly but not exclusively, in the Lang Auditorium, for the benefit of students – and not just those D:F/M majors – so that they didn’t have to trek so much around the city to Center events? For a department with no imagination and no funding for programming for students, the Center relationship was a blessing.

The Chair knows the history. Maybe he might share.

Best,
G Morris
