I’m still working on part 2 of my series about who gets to wield the power of words, but in the meantime, I’m seeing wonderful commentary by people who don’t know where / how to make their posts more public or who haven’t felt safe doing so elsewhere. So I’d like to invite anyone who is interested to publish here, as a guest blogger, in hopes that we can start a productive conversation not just about what happened in #MNKerfuffle #DonGiovannigate, but also to help AMS leadership know where to go from here.
- Write something, and publish it here as a guest blogger. I can offer you the safety of moderated comments; you can choose which comments to allow. I’m also happy for you to write under a pseudonym and I will guarantee your anonymity.
- If you’ve already written something and have published (or are about to publish) it elsewhere, please send me a link. I’ll set up a blog hop page and will keep it updated.
I am particularly interested in essays that:
- are data- or experience-driven, and address systemic issue of privilege within the AMS.
- not only address systemic problems, but also suggest solutions. This will help us get beyond the “we’re sorry, we didn’t know” phase and into the “let’s do this” phase.
