Many articles in the works.
Below, the first two paragraphs of a very long memo in the wake of the November 10, 2010, faculty meeting.
November 14, 2010
My reply was posted on Hunter L.
So, I’ve been getting these emails from Adjunct Instructor Cindy Rodriguez, who copies everyone in the department as well as others outside the department, about the anguish she experiences when she reads one of my memos. In one response – copied et al, of course – she suggested that I go file the appropriate complaints with the appropriate bodies and to stop writing acidic memos (which, of course, are based on the complaints filed with the appropriate bodies who either rule in my favor or support my allegations which I believe should be aired) because they pain her so much. She also disapproved of my email about the shortcomings of the Aronson award of which she is associated and so she replied, I guess, to buttress Blanca Vasquez’s cheap shot.
Most Film and Media dept. faculty know that Gregg can raise issues in ways that are contentious.”Â â€” Blanca Vasquez, Adjunct Instructor.
My reply was 761 words of pointed insights.
“Hi Aronsonians,Â I am forwarding a note from Gregg Morris, who teaches journalism at Hunter and who has raised concerns about the Aronson student undergraduate prize. Separating his concerns from how he states them would be a good thing. Most Film and Media dept. faculty know that Gregg can raise issues in ways that are contentious.”Â [â€” Blanca Vasquez, Adjunct Instructor]
So, whatâ€™s the skinny on this teapot?
“Most Film and Media dept. faculty know that Gregg can raise issues in ways that are contentious.” Blanca Vasquez, Adjunct Instructor.
Before she embarked on a path to ingratiate herself into D:F/M – or perhaps before I knew she had embarked – Blanca Vasquez and I commiserated occasionally about some of its sordid features. For example, the reputation of a College Lab Technician known for his dedication to students and his technical smarts inspired a fully tenured professor who, flushed in villainy and stealth and paranoia, orchestrated the demise of the CLT as a member of D:F/M.
I kid you not.
