Some of you will recall a post that notified my little corner of the blogosphere of historian Roy Rosenzweig's premature death from cancer. Someone has done a lovely website that has all the information one might want, including the dates of memorials (December at George Mason University, March at the Organization of American Historians in New York), obituaries, and a feature that allows you to share a story about Roy. Click here.
Hat tip to MR, thesis writer extraordinaire.
‘Dramatic art professor Bobbi Owen is the only person facing disciplinary action [for the University of North Carolina bogus courses scandal] who has tenure. Owen was senior associate dean for undergraduate education in the College of Arts and Sciences from 2005 to 2014. According to Wainstein’s report, she asked Nyang’oro to cut back the volume of his independent studies. Despite being aware of issues, Owen apparently did not mention them to “anybody above her in the administration,” the report said.’
