www.professoriswatching.org     website     2017

Employing a network of students and educators stateside and beyond, professoriswatching.org is an online, opensource, experimental forum for exchange that functions as a resource of support for educators, artists, and community activists working against white supremacist, conservative groups in their everyday life. The mission of professoriswatching.org is to further document the stories of people who have been victims of policing and discrimination due to their views and actions against the advancement of conservative, right-wing ideology. The Professor is Watching is committed to interrogating and documenting the effects of right-wing claims to “free speech,” which masks the advancement of violent, bigotry-laden treatment of others. The inaugural site commenced as of the opening exhibition of The Dangerous Professors at Triumph Gallery, curated by Ruslana Lichtzier in March of 2017. Current educators identified as dangerous on the site hosted by Turning Point USA list were the first to contribute to the site.
