I have agreed to run for Faculty Council because I believe that we need strong faculty governance at UNC, now more than ever before, and in particular, representation to voice the concerns and opinions of the faculty of CAS, which perhaps uniquely lacks its own collective deliberative body--that is, there is no CAS faculty assembly, council, senate (vel sim), or other venue for discussing and registering (as a group or by division) opinions or resolutions on or responses to dominant administrative structures and top-down policies which have a profound effect on our work and teaching. We work now in a post-departmental era in which open and collective discussion is critical to maintain the intellectual integrity of our communities. If elected I will be a vocal and responsive representative of the Humanities and CAS.
