Email response from a University of Wisconsin professor:

Subject: Information concerning the confidentiality of your e-mail

As you may know, the Republican Party of Wisconsin has submitted an Open Records request for the e-mails of a faculty member after he presented scholarship critical of them.  I do not know if that request will be granted. Because I have recently been at certain protests and have signed certain petitions (on my own time, not university time) that the Republican Party would also object to, I am informing all who e-mail me that I can not guarantee your confidentiality. My private e-mail is [redacted].  However, it is unclear whether I can guarantee confidentiality of my private e-mail if the content is deemed to be official university business, and I may not be able to discuss information protected by the federal educational privacy act.  You can also call me at [redacted], but please note that voice messages are e-mailed to me.  I apologize for the inconvenience and hope this situation resolves itself soon.
