Cary Nelson:

On absent response to assaults upon shared governance and academic freedom.

“Most faculty members, however, took no notice of these events, despite their being publicized in either news reports of scholarly journals. Focused on their own affairs, faculty stepped nimbly around their colleagues’ bodies—as on a battlefield—and got on with their own business.  Shared governance should have produced a public discussion of these cases, so that the structural failures that helped produce them might have been corrected.”
