Introducing Guest Blogger Frank Wu
I’m delighted to introduce Professor Frank Wu (Howard Law School), who will be guest blogging with us for the next month.
Frank is the author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, which was immediately reprinted in its hardcover edition, and co-author of Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment. He is now writing a book about the Vincent Chin case. From 2004 to 2008, he served as the ninth Dean of Wayne State University Law School in his hometown of Detroit. In the 2008-2009 academic year, he will teach as a Visiting Professor at University of Maryland and George Washington University; in the summer, he will be a C.V. Starr Visiting Professor at the new Peking University School of Transnational Law. In the 2009-2010 academic year, he will rejoin the faculty of Howard University, where he was formerly a full Professor.
Frank serves as a Trustee of Gallaudet University, the only university in the world serving primarily deaf and hard of hearing, and he became Vice-Chair of the Board in 2006. He has been an adjunct professor at Columbia University, a visiting professor at University of Michigan, and a teaching fellow at Stanford University. He also has taught over several short periods at Deep Springs College, a highly-selective full-scholarship all-male school enrolling twenty-six on a student-run cattle ranch near Death Valley.
Prior to his academic career, Frank held a clerkship with the late U.S. District Judge Frank J. Battisti in Cleveland and practiced law with the firm of Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco. He received a B.A. from the Johns Hopkins University and a J.D. from the University of Michigan. He has completed the Management Development Program of the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.
Some of his publications include:
* YELLOW: RACE IN AMERICA BEYOND BLACK AND WHITE (Basic Books 2003)
