A Medievalist Leads the Charge of the English Department at UC-Davis Rally


As our readers know, Karl and Jeffrey have both recently posted on the student protests and police brutality at UC-Davis, HERE and HERE. I learned yesterday, happily, that the English department at UC-Davis made a collective statement about the brutality and the need for the Chancellor of the University, Linda P.B. Katehi, to step down, and they chose Seeta Chaganti, a medievalist well known to many of us [she will, in fact, have an essay appearing in postmedieval's special issue on Becoming-Media and recently participated in our experimental crowd review with us] to make that statement publicly at a rally on campus this past Monday [November 21st], and you can see the video of Seeta reading that statement here:

You can also read the statement HERE, and if you are at all interested in signing Nathan Brown's letter to Chancellor Katehi, asking for her resignation, go HERE.
