    Several years ago, a friend of ours, filmmaker Evan Coyne Maloney, attempted to lampoon the iconic field of women's studies by showing up at random campuses, on camera, and asking where he could find the men's studies department. It turns out that Evan may have been ahead of his time. "A few institutions have established centers of masculinity research and counseling," Peter Monaghan reports in the December 15, 2017 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education. "Among them are the Center for the Study of Masculinities and Men's Development at Western Illinois University and the Men and Masculinities Center at...

    Editorial The death of real democracy By Andrew Wodin-Schwartz, UMass student April 15, 2003 The current political situation in the United States of America is following a trend toward anti-democracy. With the Cold War now safely in the past, once again our wealth and power is being challenged, this time by a new force that has been largely dubbed "terrorists" or "Muslims" (the two are virtually indistinguishable in main-stream media). In response to these seemingly novel movements, the Bush administration has decided to declare ideological wars by taking many additional measures to ensure the continued growth of our wealth and...

    More than 300 professors and students at the University of Massachusetts have signed a petition asking the university to get rid of its holdings in any company that does business with Israel. There's just one catch: It's not very much money, about $5,000. If the Israeli army is anything like the U.S. Defense Department, that's one hammer, a flashlight and three toilet seats. For comparison, a student at the University of Massachusetts pays $6,482 in tuition and fees. And, for perspective, the university foundation has $150 million in investments. All across the nation, at campuses from Amherst to Berkeley, students...
