Damn, no one from my school. I was hoping. But then again, I am also in conservative VA *sigh*

looks like I'm off to write some thank-you notes...
4th-Apr-2006 04:54 pm (UTC)
It makes me want to go take classes from these people.
4th-Apr-2006 04:54 pm (UTC)
Looks like Columbia wins. w00t!

4th-Apr-2006 05:24 pm (UTC)
I'm amused that they'd even bother listing anyone from Columbia. HI, conservatives, where have you been for the past fifty years? Do they really think it's some big secret?
4th-Apr-2006 04:56 pm (UTC)
It's so pathetic. Honestly...Derrick Bell, who thinks that graduate student unions will ruin the academy, as a radical? Todd Gitlin, who has turned his back on his own radicalism? Even if you beleive liberalism is dangerous, this is not a list of dangerous professors, it is a list of influential ones, ones who have staked their career on some proposal which was once semi-radical.

John Bellamy Foster is equally as crazy now as he ever was. ;)
4th-Apr-2006 04:57 pm (UTC)
Not one professor from Oberlin, my alma mater? I demand a recount!
4th-Apr-2006 06:05 pm (UTC)
The list clearly trends towards research schools.
4th-Apr-2006 04:58 pm (UTC)
and how many of these are in the northeast?

and the south?


or how about the west coast?

or the midwestern states.


it seems mighty dis-proportioned to me....

i'm happy that there's at least 4 in jersey. (:

yay for "dangerous" academics!!!
4th-Apr-2006 04:59 pm (UTC)
based on what criteria?
4th-Apr-2006 05:04 pm (UTC)
more or less for having far left viewpoints past or present. His work is insanely sloppy, misattributing quotes etc.. it is a pathetic joke
4th-Apr-2006 05:03 pm (UTC)
damn that bell hooks with her radical ideas that black women should also have a voice in academia. She's TEH DANGEROUS.

a few from my school, none from my department. But i'm going to have to find out who these other people are and go take their courses
5th-Apr-2006 02:34 am (UTC)
Number one: he could've spelled bell hooks' name right. Everyone knows she doesn't captalize her name, except for Horowitz because, well, he's probably never read anything she wrote.

Number two: He's accusing a lot of Semites of being anti-Semetic. He's got at leas three or four people up there of Middle Eastern descent.

Number three: Considering the very small proportion of university faculty of color, the proportion of faculty of color on this list is scary, to say the least.
4th-Apr-2006 05:06 pm (UTC)
oh and wow, all 3 from my school are black too! Coincedence???
4th-Apr-2006 05:52 pm (UTC)
I am right there with you. The number of Spanish, Arabic & Indian names on this list seems rather disproportionate to me.

I laughed at that, too.
4th-Apr-2006 05:07 pm (UTC)
Best recruitment tool ever.
4th-Apr-2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
you are so incredibly right.
4th-Apr-2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
I think all of the professors on this list whose names I recognize would be thrilled that anyone thought they were dangerous.
4th-Apr-2006 05:14 pm (UTC)
Wow... the crazy liberal environment guy in my department would be so disappointed that he didn't make the list!
4th-Apr-2006 05:15 pm (UTC)
Just a minor note - the two Univ of Michigan profs are both at Ann Arbor. Rubin is Anthro (and junior faculty); Cole is a (full) professor of history.
