We, the undersigned, write to express in the most
strenuous terms the University\'s decision to deny
Norman Cowie tenure.
The decision is unqualifiedly wrong. As his students
and former students, we can tell you that Norman is
one of the best teachers and mentors we\'ve ever
encountered. As his colleagues, we can tell you that
Norman\'s dedication to the University is exemplary. As
scholars, we can tell you that Norman\'s work is on the
cutting edge of videomaking nationally and
internationally. As artists, we can tell you that
Norman is a highly respected member of the video art
Criticism of his work is clearly uninformed and
unfamiliar with the field. The University\'s decision
is a public embarrassment and a loss to us all.
Students, colleagues and supporters of Norman Cowie
