"The other thing that makes labor a compelling field for student activists is that it is multi-racial and multi-gendered; itís an area where white students can connect to people of color in their places of work, and also where students of different races can work together." --Barbara Bowen, speaking with Ann Wallace

"Academics do have an obligation to imagine better vistas for the university. We should see ourselves as part of the social fabric, serving a public need. It's a two-way street, which sometimes gets lost in the realm of professional affect, which casts us as brainy individuals doing unique research projects, rather than as participants in public life." --Jeffrey Williams, speaking with Felicia Carr
Theory and Practice: a tribute to Jeff Williams by Bruce Robbins

Jamie Owen Daniel

These young people... are being starved and bullied. The university is refusing to negotiate with these bright, ambitious young people -- the future leaders of our society --and is threatening to fire them unless they cave in before February 1. Many fear this is just a prelude to some new form of thuggish, exploitative wage-slavery. Yours in shock, horror and dismay, Margaret Atwood
