A Talk: What’s Wrong With Women’s Studies? Academic Feminism, Censorship & Men

What’s Wrong With Women’s Studies?

Academic Feminism, Censorship & Men

Featuring Professor Janice Fiamengo

In Professing Feminism: Education and Indoctrination in Women’s Studies, Daphne Patai and Noretta Koertge present research showing how women’s studies has come to serve a political agenda, leading to deep problems: dubious scholarship, indoctrination, and the alienation of supporters.

Dr. Janice Fiamengo, U of Ottawa English Professor, discusses the problems of academic feminism at Canadian universities: dubious scholarship, indoctrination, dogmatic teaching approaches, limitations on free speech, effects of “equity hiring,” and the consequences for men in the humanities.

Thurs, March 7 at 7:00 PM

Note: The University of Toronto has kindly offered us complimentary use of one of their theatre venues, in order to better ensure our free speech rights to host this event are honoured. The new location is a 5 minute walk from the previous location.

    This sound's interesting. I just hope it doesn't have the same reaction that the Warren Farrell talk had.
