In case you were unaware-
The recent creation of the Professor Watchlist was met by a number of responses. Among those is the open letter circulated by the AAUP, inviting faculty to stand in solidarity with their colleagues and add their names to the Professor Watchlist. As of this posting, almost 12,000 individuals have signed on. In addition to shows of solidarity, some targeted faculty members have written first person accounts of their experiences. AAUP member Beth Lueck wrote about being targeted by the right-wing media here on the Academe blog. Several other faculty members have also posted accounts of finding themselves on the watchlist. I am collecting the ones I have come across so far here.
- George Yancy: I am a Dangerous Professor.
- Heather Cox Richardson: ‘I Will Not Shut Up. America Is Still Worth Fighting For.’
- Robert Jensen: How I got listed as an educator with a radical agenda on the Professor Watchlist.
