Reader reviews on the latest knee-slapper from PhD Comix:

“Lacking a serious engagement with Lacan.”

Whoa buddy! Them PhD Comix sure is good! LOL! Nothing like knowing I’m not alone in hell to get me through yet another night! LOL.”

“I don’t get it. My work is my life. My advisors help me with my work. Just a few more years of this and then I move for a post-doc. A few more years of a post-doc and then I move for a part-time teaching spot. A few more years of part-timing it, probably only a few for me, and it’s time for another sweet move to start the tenure track. A few more years on the tenure track and it’s all gravy from there on out. Gravy.”

OMG LOL! It me. LOL!

This is fine.

I DON’T FIND THIS FUNNY. FIRST OF ALL I AM REALLY SPECIAL AND SMART, TEACHER SAID SO. SECOND OF ALL WE ARE SO PRIVILEGED TO BE IN THIS PLACE. SHOW SOME GRATITUDE. IF IT WERE EASY EVERYBODY WOULD DO IT. MAYBE TRY WORKING HARDER? YOU WON’T BE LAUGHING WHEN I HAVE ALL THE GOLD STARS, WAU!”

TOP SECRET LEAK! Management Program Revealed!

Seems like everything is being automated these days, including university management of challenges from students and workers.

WAU’s very own daring spy unit (Rosenberg’s Revenge) has discovered that management is running the university with the help of a computer program. At great risk to their own safety our spies were able to forward this screenshot so we could share it with you.

Truly shocking. Your tuition dollars at work, friends.

“I am not optimistic about tuition hikes” from Free University Coalition

The Free University Coalition (which we’ll refer to fUC) has published a piece challenging UCLA’s new branding campaign, which marks a change in its attempts to erase its own oppressive history by co-opting the history of its own oppressive actions to sell more degrees, in the light of the recent tuition hikes. It is a great read full of great citations. It was also held back by the Daily Bruin for an extended period of time because they didn’t want to publish the word “herstory.” Yeah…

A letter from students and workers “of color” in the Takeover of Humanities 2

Education Should Be Free! is on fire with their letters and statements. The latest one, “A letter from students and workers ‘of color’ in the Takeover of Humanities 2” is a must read.

WAU is for solidarity with all anti-authoritarian organizing, to Autonomous Students at Santa Cruz, and all those working on the problematics of cooptation from within positions of oppression.

Education Should Be Free!

We have met as students and workers “of color” – a racialized category that we recognize as unstable and ambiguous – in the University of California Santa Cruz Takeover of Humanities 2. We exist, we are out here and we have something to say.

Many of us organize with and for a wide-ranging collective called Autonomous Students (AS). When students of color in AS find it necessary to organize autonomously within the group to advance our political goals, we do so. That is because we believe in the revolutionary potential of people of color (POC) autonomy. Autonomy to us means being not just independent from, but also antagonistic to, white-supremacist-capitalist-patriarchal power structures. These centers of power include, but are not limited to: the UC president Janet Napolitano, the UC Regents, every UC campus administration, and the armed repressive force of the state and capital, the police, and those that materially…
