Attention Colleague Larry Shore Who Calls Himself a Professor

Friday, January 8th, 2016

What think ye about this latest from Minding the Workplace, Positive Work Cultures Create More Productive Organizations, as it applies to the culture of #D:F/M. I believe its tenets are antithetical to the MO of #D:F/M. But you may have a different opinion.

Attention Jay Roman, Chair of the Department of Film and Media Studies at Hunter College, City University of New York

As the fall 2014 semester begins, I believed this is a good time for a moment of recollection. The Hunter College Senate this past spring upheld my appeal of a D:F/M Grade Appeals Committee decision to give a passing grade of B to the worst cheating student in all my years of teaching, not just at Hunter but at Rutgers. And LIU, Brooklyn Campus.



Open Letter to Hunter’s ICIT

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Dear Instructional Computing and Information Technology Department (AKA ICIT),

Thanks for the years of supporting my efforts to publish the WORD  (despite considerable obstacles). That invaluable service, of course, includes support for my classroom instruction where much of the WORD content is developed, essentially the heart and soul of the project. You may be gone (from D:F/M, that is) but you are not forgotten by this instructor as this spring semester begins.

Living and Learning Through Eye Openers

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

I went into journalism to fight for justice and encountered this eye opener at my first newspaper  job in Rochester, New York, quite a while back: Women couldn’t be police reporters because the editors – white, male – insisted the beat was too dangerous for them to be in the streets; Italian Americans were not allowed to write metro news and were consigned to the sports section; blacks were not allowed in sports and Spanish Speaking people were not allowed in the building, let alone the newsroom.

And so I wanted to teach college where I thought I could continue a good fight. And, of course, that led to another eye opener.
