Stanford Lures Harvard Professors Bobo, Morgan


BOSTON

For married partners in academia, tenure, or the lack thereof, can complicate a couple's situation substantially, and not always in the most positive manner. But for two nationally renowned professors, Lawrence Bobo and Marcyliena Morgan, who are married, tenure troubles have resulted in a coastal shift that positions them rather favorably.

He is the author of numerous books and articles and was recently elected to the National Academy of Sciences.

Morgan will join Stanford as an associate professor of communication. She is currently an associate professor of African and African American studies at Harvard. Her research has focused on language, culture and identity, sociolinguistics, discourse and interaction. She is the founder and director of the Hip Hop Archive and author of Language, Discourse and Power in African American Culture.

I am extremely eager for my colleagues on the faculty and Stanford students to have the opportunity to share in the dynamic intellectual energy they will bring to our campus."

Sharon Long, the Vernon R. and Lysbeth Warren Anderson Dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences, said Stanford's combination of disciplinary and interdisciplinary strengths makes this an excellent fit for Bobo's and Morgan's academic work. …
