A friend in the English department was talking about how they used African American literature in a fairly literal-minded way to promote anti-racism, like using Rankine's Citizen as though it were just a list of microagressions, with no poetic aspirations beyond that. Only the white canon, then, gets nuanced literary readings. My friend is younger than I am, and tends to take the typical left-wing positions, so coming from her this critique seemed accurate, not motivated by any other agenda.
My own department keeps losing US Latinas. There are three women who have left, a Dominican, a Puertorican, a Chicana, plus another Latina woman in the library who was the bibliographer for Spanish. Now we'll have a diversity committee, but a less diverse department.
