Dankprofessor’s Weblog

A weblog examining sexual politics in higher education and beyond.

Pulp Fiction at the University of New Mexico

Congratulations to Joy Harjo for being awarded a United States Artists $50,000 fellowship.  Such was announced by the USA on November 10 shortly thereafter followed by her melodramatic resignation from the University of New Mexico creative writing program in a so-called protest of UNM continuing to employ Lisa Chavez in the creative writing program.  Of course, Ms. Harjo has the right to engage in whatever melodrama she desires. It is too bad that her not so creative pulp fiction has to be in the form of an attack on a fellow UNM professor.
