Love poems surely partake of such a structure, built as they are from an address to a beloved who is almost always somewhere else. We might say then that absence lies at the foundation of this particular form of poiesis or production, the love poem. Missing calls, conjures or convokes the lover—as well as the reader, who is summoned as another beloved, albeit a voyeur, one who reads over the shoulder of the initial addressee.
Most media coverage—even from the heretofore consistently pro-Nifong Duff Wilson of the New York Times—stressed the sections in which the president criticized Nifong, in strong and commendable language. Perhaps this bifurcated response was inevitable.
It seems as if Brodhead currently has to satisfy several different constituencies, most of which place competing demands on him. That the state and national media focused on his call for due process suggests that, overall, the address was a positive development, despite its disappointing comments about the Group of Duke, therefore, finds itself in an awkward position.
The major legal threat it seemed to face last spring, when the key decisions and non-decisions in this affair were made, came from the accuser. Now, it faces a looming legal threat from some of its students.
Parents who spend such an amount want to ensure that their children will be treated well by the school. No Engineering professors did so. In the last week, 19 Economics professors publicly stated that they welcomed all Duke students into their classes—regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or athletic status.
No question exists that most Duke professors care very much about their students. From a standpoint of reaching out to parents, then, Brodhead has every reason to concede that mistakes were made last spring—not to seek scapegoats, to challenge tenure, or to fire people, as was done to former lacrosse coach Mike Pressler.
But to reassure prospective Duke parents that the administration is taking positive steps to ensure that every arts and sciences professor at Duke treats every student at the institution fairly.
But they also satisfied pressure from alumni, a group that no president can afford to alienate. It originated in response to decisions by prestigious universities notably Columbia and Stanford to fire professors because of their political beliefs.
In recent years, however, academic freedom has been redefined by some to suggest that it should leave academics free from outside criticism of anything they say or do.
Because of their overall record of statements and actions, several arts and sciences professors would seem to be at least as legally vulnerable as is Kim Curtis.
Professors, as a whole, resent outside criticism. Duke, in particular, has aggressively recruited professors in the last 15 years with a promise of a comfortable intellectual atmosphere on campus. Unfortunately, Brodhead seems unwilling or unable to give even a mild statement of rebuke, perhaps delivered in the passive voice, regarding inappropriate faculty behavior.
Trustees At most institutions, the Trustees also would be placing pressure on Brodhead. On one side, then, legal advice and faculty pressure suggest that Brodhead will continue with his January 7 line of wholeheartedly defending the Group of At this stage, the question would seem to be whether pressure from alumni or prospective parents will force him to reconsider this approach.
But the administration seems to have embraced a policy of demanding that Durham authorities treat Duke students with the same procedures accorded to all Durham residents—a most welcome, and highly positive, development. The reader especially objected that my bullet-pointing four professors Farred, CrowleyCurtis, and Davidson left this incorrect impression.
I should have been clearer in my language in that section of the post, and I apologize.Jan 26, · Few people any longer are defending the print media’s coverage of the lacrosse case. In a recent edition of CNN’s Realiable Sources, CNN and Washington Post media correspondent Howard Kurtz termed the event an “absolutely awful performance by the media, pumping this into a big national melodrama.” Christine Brennan, a reporter for USA Today, agreed that it was “an awful performance.
