The RightsCast will return next week with a conversation with Osamudia James (Miami) about white identity and affirmative action.
ETA May 25, 2015: I forgot that this week is the Law & Society Association’s annual conference which a lot of law professors tend to attend (although not me this year). So in the interest once again of releasing new episodes when large segments of my colleagues are not otherwise occupied, I will postpone this episode one more week. It is excellent and so is Osamudia’s article, “White Like Me,” which is published in the NYU Law Review.
I received this call for responses from Jennifer Carter-Johnson (Michigan State). Please feel free to respond directly to Jenny, and to circulate broadly:
I am working on the newsletter for the New Law Professors Section. If you’d like to write a piece for that, I’d love to hear from you. BUT even if you don’t want to commit to a full article, I’m planning an advice section with short comments. If you could answer one or both of the questions below in 1-3 sentences, I’ll try to include as many responses as possible in the newsletter. I am happy to make your comments anonymous if you prefer, just let me know.
1. What surprised you the most about the tenure process? OR What do you wish you had known before going through the tenure process?
2. How do you structure your writing schedule and keep yourself motivated in light of all of your other obligations?
