MOGADISHU' PROF BACK AT COLUMBIA Email him at npd18@columbia.edu
Columbia University ^

Posted on 04/09/2003 3:14:35 PM PDT by renegade6640

NICHOLAS DE GENOVA, Assistant Professor Ph.D., University of Chicago Telephone: (212) 854-0199

office: 416 Hamilton email: npd18@columbia.edu

The central concerns of my research and teaching include: labor and class formation, racialization, the production of urban space, nationalism, the politics of citizenship, and transnational social processes, especially migration. My ethnographic research explores the social productions of racialized and spatialized difference in the experiences of transnational Mexican migrant workers within the space of the U.S. nation-state. More specifically, I examine transnational urban conjunctural spaces that link the U.S. and Latin America as a standpoint of critique from which to interrogate U.S. nationalism, political economy, racialized citizenship, and immigration law. This work contributes to a reconceptualization of Latin American, Latino, and "American" (U.S.) Studies. Likewise, I am interested in the methodological problems of ethnographic research practice and the limits of anthropological disciplinary forms of knowledge and modes of representation.

Representative Publications:

1995 "Gangster Rap and Nihilism in Black America: Some Questions of Life and Death." Social Text 43: 89-132. 1995 "Check Your Head: The Cultural Politics of Rap Music." Transition 67: 123-37. 1996 "Split-Level Bedlam: Chicago at the End of the Twentieth Century." Public Culture 9:1: 114-25. 1997 "The Junkyard of Futures Past." Anthropology and Humanism 22:2: 171-79. 1998 "Race, Space, and the Reinvention of Latin America in Mexican Chicago." Latin American Perspectives 102: 25:5: 87-116.

This guy is such a moron. I hate to waste the electrons it takes to send him a message.

Instead, I wrote my U. S. Representative and both my Senators. I said no college should receive taxpayer funds when they tolerate teaching hate and armed violence against U. S. military personnel.

I hope that's not too radical a suggestion.

What’s more amazing is that it’ll end up being on a list for some general ed requirement.

I once got stuck taking the Asian-American Women in Literature class the same way… every other class that fulfilled the requirement was full and it was the only one with open slots.

Since I wasn't interested in hanging out for an extra semester just to meet a requirement, I opted to just take it. It was a nothing class, BTW.

Representative publications: Gangsta rap etc.

Another elitist regressive mandarin making money and a reputation from exploiting the sub cultures of the poor.

Degenova represents everything that is anti human and anti progressive in intellectual inquiry.

Why not just let him stay where he is, but make DAMNED sure our returning Soldiers from the NY area have a chance to hear his logic. There will be true heroes walkin' the streets before long. The peacenicks better keep that in mind.

I sent him this...

You may not have thought about this when making public your fervent desire for millions of young Americans to be violently killed but, those men and women will return soon. Many are from the NY area. Some, if not most, have been unaware of cowardly twits such as yourself; but they will soon become aware. I would not want to be you when a Psy-Op's boy who lives in Manhattan learns about your position. Maybe he'll give you the opportunity to personally kill him.

It must really suck to be you.

On the contrary, that's an excellent suggestion. I think we should all do the same. Really, we're the taxpayers. We ought to have a little say in how our money gets spent. I might add that if one lives in that state, they ought to write their state reps and Governor as well.

What are the conditions under which Columbia is accredited? I'm sure there are some. Does their failure to do anything about this maniac violate any of them? Perhaps it's possible to have Columbia's accreditation revoked if they don't act.

Whoa -- careful there friend. That's a pretty radical suggestion, and there are plenty of Democrats who beg to differ with you!

I like you're thinking, however.

As long as rich parents continue to send their kids to schools like Columbia, and continue to give money to the alumni associations, wankers like this will continue to spread their nastiness.

And I'm interested in the epistemology of pale, pithy, ultra-pedantic, quasi-intellectual chondriacs, who suffered so much the Freudian trauma under the infant lavatory instruction of their own pedestrian mammon, that such individuals mature unable to commit coitus with any bodies other than inflatable synthetic dolls, or under the physical dominance from those of their own gender, and subsequently manifest such infinite hatred and spite for all men of honest virility and real courage, that only irrational bitterness remain in their personalities toward all other persons, institutions, and cultural cannons of true good will, and otherwise all authority in general, especially the honorable historic national influence that affords the diminutive, self-affected, personally unachievable psyche of the archetypal Columbia University Social Science gutter gas-bag, with their liberty, opportunity, and sustenance a priory.

Both my senators are democrats and I would not ask them to pi$$ on me if I was on fire.

It looks like he crawled back out from under that rock he was hiding under.

The people to pressure are our Congressmen to cut off all aid to government monies to Columbia as long as this traitor is on the payroll, and to the left-wing elitist University Administative jackels who employ this idiot.

People like this guy make me sick. I'm sure that, in his mind, he's doing his part to help "free the black man from the tyranny of centuries of white oppression" with his works. In reality, I'm sure he views these oppressed people almost as pets, as they provide a nice little diversion and interesting music for him to study. What a jerk.

I try not to hate anyone...but the things he said......

I doubt you'll find a prosecutor in NYC who would bring that case. Even if the professor is charged he'll ask for a jury trial and not be convicted. (Don't get me wrong, I like your thinking -- but we're talking about NYC here.)

No east-coast politicians are going to tackle this case. But Senators and Representatives from the U. S. heartland might be able to take some of Columbia's federal money away. Nothing upsets liberals worse than trying to take away their government money -- it drives the crazy!

It may only require a prominent politician to call for this weasel to be prosecuted for "hate crimes" to put the fear of God in these ingrates. Fear is a powerful thing. I don't mind what these people think as long as they don't say it and by doing so allow themselves to be used by our enemies to demoralize our troops or sway political decisions.
