This is the rebirth of what was the web site EMUTalk.org (check out these archives to see the original site, from 2006 to 2015) and an extension of the Facebook group started in 2015.
We will see what happens in this new version, but one thing is for sure: while this is a forum for discussing issues associated with Eastern Michigan University and the Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor area, IT HAS NO OFFICIAL AFFILIATION WITH EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY! If you want that, visit http://www.emich.edu.
EMYoutalk.org was started and run by “sitedad,” aka Steven D. Krause (though this time around, there are others helping out). Krause’s “day job” is as a Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at EMU. Again, while Krause does work at EMU, EMYoutalk.org has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS OFFICIAL WORK as a professor. Essentially, this is Krause’s hobby. You can learn far more than you want to learn about Krause at his web site.
