Useful reference?

For Chris or Billie, maybe:

Faculty and male student athletes: racial differences in the environmental predictors of academic achievement. By: Comeaux, Eddie; Harrison, C. Keith. Race, Ethnicity & Education, Jul2007, Vol. 10 Issue 2, p199-214

I haven't read it, but I came across it and thought it might be relevant for you two. I figured I'd mention it since it's not in a comp/rhet journal, so you might not have seen it.

I found it in Academic Search Premier, but it's too recent to be available full-text.

Happy reading. Or ignoring. Whatevah.

Thanks, Meagan! I haven't heard of this, but I'll be sure and add it to the list. Now that school's about to start, maybe the bootcamp will become a bit more active.

Thanks for the info, though!

You're welcome-- though I should confess it's all an evil plan to make sure that everyone else feels like they have as much to do as I do.

Or something like that.

That journal is new-to-me, but I really like the few pieces I've read from it so far.

Interestingly enough, Meagan, I found this journal a few months ago (quite by accident) and they do have quite a number of articles about race/athletics/atheltes/education. Thanks for the recommendation. I was actually thinking of YOU when I saw this a while back.

How's your work coming this summer? Ready for the fall?

Billie-- sorry I didn't respond to this comment sooner-- I'm not always good about checking in on comments. My summer? Well, I've gotten a lot of work done, but not as much as I should have. That's usually the case, though. :) I'm definitely ready to start teaching-- my syllabus is just about finalized-- but the dissertation and job market stuff is a different story. Some days I feel I have a handle on it, and other days I can't even imagine where the handle might be.
