Email practices: Students should include their course code in the subject line of their email (to make sure it is sorted into my priority inboxes) and it is generally helpful to be clear and descriptive in the subject line. During the regular academic terms I try to respond to all emails within two business days of receipt, and usually within one day: it can be easy to misconstrue tone or intent over email, and so I sometimes tend toward clarity over immediacy in my replies.

Alternative means of contact: I know that email will not always be the most appropriate or accessible form of communication in some circumstances. I am happy to arrange alternative means of contact where possible, including but not limited to phone calls, video chats, in-person meetings, group conversation, and other alternatives as our situations and needs dictate.

Forms of address: Please refer to me just by my first initial “C” both in professional and personal contexts. I also respond to spelled phonetic equivalents such as “Ci” or “Cea”. I use they/them pronouns to refer to myself, and I request that you use those pronouns when referring to or talking about me, whether in professional citation or in casual conversation. Being attentive to the pronouns of others is important for building more accessible spaces and practices in academia and elsewhere, but I also acknowledge that it can also take time to change our practices, that mistakes happen, and that barriers to learning exist for multilingual learners and others. I often make mistakes with my own friends and colleagues. I hope we can feel encouraged to correct ourselves as needed, and reflect on mistakes as opportunities to become more attentive to our learned practices and assumptions.
