When there was a real estate boom... I remember looking up and seeing all of these cranes in the sky... all of this excessive building, and not really dealing with what was in front of us. And we all know how that ended. That crashed and burned. It was a catastrophe. –– Solange
This article on college closings emphasizes important and alarming issues. It unfortunately gives space to "birth dearth" explanation instead of the college debt crisis and other sociopolitical factors shaping the political economy of higher ed.
This week I'm conducting a workshop at NYU called Risk Assessment, Alternative Data, and the Politics of Recognition: "ways that credit scoring strategies targeted at those considered credit 'invisible' or 'unscorable' may perpetuate, rather than challenge, the racial wealth gap"

A skill I'm trying to develop among my classes, through scaffolded assignment and in-class workshops, is succinct writing. I tell students it is often much harder to write succinctly than to write a lot. To figure out what needs to be said versus what can be said is a real task.
If I had to provide a summary of my chapter on the model minority myth I'm working on for this anthology it'd be: The model minority myth is more pernicious than commonly discussed and interrogating it requires we grapple with what Sylvia Wynter calls ontological sovereignty.

In my Money, Crime, and Punishment class we're gonna listen to Sam Cooke's "Chain gang," Nina Simone's "Work song," and Branford Marsalis's "Berta, Berta" as part of our lesson on gendered racism, convict leasing, chain gangs, and the scholarship of Ida B. Wells and Sarah Haley.
I'll be participating in this panel at Princeton in a few weeks. Precarious Ph.D: Academic Labor and the Changing University
