Dear Joy,

Thank you for writing out this important piece of professional and institutional history, painful though it must be to relive these experiences and to share them. It is a valuable read because of its thoughtful exploration of the context and implications of the very disturbing events in your recent professional life.

Sending warmest regards and support, Barbara

Subject: [SIGCIS-Members] What happened on the list last year

Hello SIGCIS Colleagues,

First, thank you for your many on- and off-list messages of congratulations and support for my book. I deeply appreciate them, especially in the context of what I'm about to share.

Those of you who were on the list last spring saw my work savaged by a man named Brian Dear. Even then, I received on- and off-list messages of support for my scholarship. But what happened publicly was only one piece of a terrible, terrible year.

Here is a fuller picture: https://medium.com/@drjoy/why-im-firing-michigan-state-sexual-harassment-online-harassment-and-utter-institutional-6663a6bde68e<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmedium.com%2F%40drjoy%2Fwhy-im-firing-michigan-state-sexual-harassment-online-harassment-and-utter-institutional-6663a6bde68e&data=01%7C01%7Cbbwalker%40unr.edu%7C2d18d2fe7bff48d57fdc08d655623e71%7C523b4bfc0ebd4c03b2b96f6a17fd31d8%7C1&sdata=6br6xCXaZnuVqbC%2F0FxNA6VlB%2F%2BdXtSuqBVjGc5E78k%3D&reserved=0>

SIGCIS as an organization did the right thing, and for that, I'm grateful.
Regards,
Joy
