Res Ipsa Loquitur Issues 1 and 2 [History of U.Mich. Student Ad Hoc Committee on Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation, 1996]

In 1996, Michigan law students formed an Ad Hoc Committee on Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation after the office door of Lance Jones, an African-American faculty member, was defaced with a racist slur. Shortly after that, the Res Gestae, a law student publication, published an attack on Catharine MacKinnon. The Ad Hoc Committee’s formation was followed by the publication of Res Ipsa Loquitur, a newsletter on race, gender, and sexual orientation. We’re making two issues of that newsletter available here.

Res Ipsa Loquitur Issue 1

Res Ipsa Loquitur Issue 2

Here is a twitter thread that is aggregating the issues and responses to Dean West’s initial statement and the responses from students and others (June 4-June 6)(includes documents).
