We write today with concern and to inform. Many of you may already be following the unfolding events regarding racist, white surpremacist hate speech incidents on Syracuse University’s campus. The story is being shared widely on social media, and we wanted to ensure that members not on social media are aware and have the resources to stand in solidarity with the faculty and students of color who have been threatened.

You might believe, and still you feel The chase has just begun That you must reach that horizon before The setting of the sun. You chase the light in front of you Nightfall close behind If you stop to catch your breath You know what you will find.
It is with great sadness that we post the following obituary, sent only moments ago by Andrea Lunsford. Andrea was the first to notify the Coalition membership of Nan’s passing, and has been in Columbus, Ohio with Nan’s family, attending to the news. – Tarez Graban Nan Johnson, professor of English emerita at The Ohio […]
Historically, the term mentor has carried with it expectations of relationality, longevity, and politics—not necessarily identical to but not completely unlike the “elder” distinction that marks some cultural contexts as distinct.

I’m being inaccurate in selecting today’s date to mark the Suffrage Centennial, when the event that we know as ratification occurred in several phases over a year’s time and, like many other aspects of global and U.S. suffrage, only after periods of regression, paradigmatic shifting, and strategic political repositioning. But today, one-hundred years ago, the […]
Conversations I have had with Coalition members tell me that members of this group for any length of time hold one particular trait in common: a strong conviction that, while it is hard work to position oneself at school or in the profession, we cannot risk leaving that positioning up to others.
