“I think that class projects can address sensitive and/or controversial issues effectively by knowing that their intended message will be received genuinely and honestly by the given party, whether a professor or institution. Talking about topics like sex, race, religion, politics felt normal and natural in our class because of our class environment.” – Caldwell Harris, ASC 2019
STUDENT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
Students have no restrictions on their freedom of expression on this website. Students’ views on politics, religion, race, class, sexuality and any other topic are welcome and will be heard.
Students have the option of posting their semester projects on this website. Please refer to Sofia Guerra’s Ida Project as an example.
STUDENTS AS “AUTHORS”
With the role of “Author”, students cannot damage this website. Keep calm-try different formats. Save all your text offline as well. “An Author can create, edit, publish, and delete only their own posts, as well as upload files and images. Authors do not have access to create, modify, or delete pages, nor can they modify posts by other users. Authors can edit comments made on their posts.” (WordPress)
MIAMI AS TEXT (MAT)
All students are required to post all of their Miami as Text projects on this website. Students should copy the format of Shalenah Ivey’s page.
Students may only upload texts and photos. All uploaded videos and Powerpoints will be deleted. Students, however, may embed videos and Google Slides. Students should try to be conscious of uploading similar images multiple times.
All sources must be cited in Modern Language Association (MLA) style. Here is the MLA Style support website.
Photographs, graphics, and other artworks are also intellectual property. Students need to cite images properly. Students should also protect their original images with the Creative Commons licensing.
EDITING OF WEBSITE
The only instances when student webpages are deleted are when they do not meet standards of quality. The reasons for this can be plagiarism (or improper citations), errors in fact, poor writing, and/or poor research. All students should back up content on their own document.
This is Professor Bailly’s personal website. He does not financially profit from it. In fact, he pays for the website to not have any ads.
