Professor * Public Intellectual * W. E. B. Du Bois Scholar
Thank you for visiting www.EarlWright2.com. Dr. Earl Wright II is the nation's leading authority on Black Sociology and the contributions of the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory to the discipline of sociology. This site is a public venue for the presentation of the research, intellectual activities and social justice endeavors of a Hip-Hop scholar who is dedicated to investigating and improving the society in which we live. It is my sincere hope that this site proves useful to you. It is also my sincere hope that you embrace each day as an opportunity to challenge and better yourself. In so doing, let the words of Dr. Carter G. Woodson (Mis-Education of the Negro) constantly ring in your ears:
"A mind that remains in the present atmosphere never undergoes sufficient development to experience what is commonly known as thinking."

Horror Stories and Tales of Success: Life in Academia
Edited by Earl Wright II and Thomas C. Calhoun
Papers are now being accepted for an edited book examining the professional challenges experienced by persons in academia. The challenges addressed can include, but are not limited to, promotion and tenure; issues of collegiality; challenges experienced because of environmental disasters (e.g., hurricane, tornado wildfire, etc.); and challenges experienced by race, class, gender, sexual orientation or physical ability at the adjunct, visiting professor, junior professor or senior professor level. Also, we welcome papers on the challenges experienced at the administrative level (Chairperson, Director, Dean, Provost or President). Conversely, we strongly encourage the submission of papers offering strategies and/or techniques for overcoming difficult and challenging professional experiences. All papers will be subjected to a peer review process.
Submissions should be between 15-30 pages (including bibliography and necessary tables) and follow American Sociological Association paper guidelines.
If you have any questions concerning this project contact Earl Wright II (see below). All papers should be submitted electronically (in Microsoft word) to Earl Wright II (email@example.com). Papers are being accepted now and the last day for submissions is April 1, 2014.
