  •  I'm in... (none)
    I teach media studies at the undergraduate level in Massachusetts. I am primarily a practioner (filmmaker) but I also teach courses in design and media theory.

    I worked for a great private university that is very progressive (in the best sense) and is always thinking about the future for its students, as well as faculty.

    I worked for a public university for six years prior to this appointment and have the gray hairs to prove it.

    As far as impediments go, I think this is true of the past two institutions: Patriot Act, Patriot Act, Patriot Act.

    And, as a result of DHS in the wake of 9/11, the many difficulties of foreign students to a) study in the US generally; b) obtain the appropriate visas (and proper information) to study in the US; c) return to their institution after visiting their respective countries during school breaks because of new and/or confusing rules that now bar them entering the US again. Lack of privacy of their personal information because of the DHS is also quite questionable.

    Keep on rockin' in a free world!
