"Reality may be stranger than fiction, but Michael Earl Craig's poems make a laudable effort to even the score. Quite possibly the funniest poet writing today, Craig's unadorned poetry tends toward the deadpan and the offbeat, with an almost David Lynch-like sense of the uncanny."—The Believer "I like being in the world of Michael Craig's poems. Anything can happen, and probably will, and it will affect me in small or large ways that I couldn't have imagined. The precision of their imagery keeps me reeling with delight."—James Tate Michael Earl Craig furthers his existential, Lynchian leanings with masterfully composed new poems. He has borrowed the everyday and returned it defamiliarized, dark, and droll. Readers are ushered out of their contemporary bustle and into the intimate viewing room that is Craig's cinematic fourth collection. Wild for the Lord Someone is sitting on a tall stool before me. I have just very carefully cut my best friend's wife's bangs. My watch feels like a small corpse on my wrist tonight. Michael Earl Craig is the author of Thin Kimono, Yes, Master, Can You Relax in My House, and the chapbook Jombang Jet. He lives in the Shields Valley, near Livingston, Montana.

A Guide for Faculty, Staff, and Administrators
Author: Kathryn E. Linder
Publisher: Stylus Publishing (VA)
In higher education, professional online identities have become increasingly important. A rightly worded tweet can cause an academic blog post to go viral. A wrongly worded tweet can get a professor fired. Regular news items in The Chronicle of Higher Educationand Inside Higher Edprovide evidence that reputations are both built and crushed via online platforms. Ironically, given the importance of digital identities to job searches, the promotion and distribution of scholarly work, pedagogical innovation, and many other components of an academic life, higher education professionals receive little to no training about how to best represent themselves in a digital space. Managing Your Professional Identity Online: A Guide for Higher Educationfills this gap by offering higher education professionals the information and guidance they need to: - craft strong online biographical statements for a range of platforms; - prioritize where and how they want to represent themselves online in a professional capacity; - intentionally and purposefully create an effective brand for their professional identity online; - develop online profiles that are consistent, professional, accurate, organized, of good quality, and representative of their academic lives; - regularly update and maintain an online presence; - post appropriately in a range of online platforms and environments; and - successfully promote their professional accomplishments. Managing Your Professional Identity Onlineis practical and action-oriented. In addition to offering a range of case studies demonstrating concrete examples of effective practices, the book is built around activities, templates, worksheets, rubrics, and bonus materials that walk readers through a step-by-step guide of how to design, build, and maintain professional online identities.

Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
Author: Robin DiAngelo
Publisher: Beacon Press
Category: Social Science
The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
