A tale Of NY Academia
Posted Friday, 26 September 2008 at 09:30

New York University Don’s decided to run an undergraduate course in feminism.


There were objections, based on the fact that the course was to be one of ‘expression’ rather than theory or academia.


After all, any woman could have a degree in expression and most of us are pretty good at it, especially when mad.


Regardless of the objections, the course began.


Three years later there was a proposal to establish a post grad course, again it passed.


A PHD course followed.


The feminist department decided they wanted to run their own faculty publication. It was called ‘Clitoral Hermeneutics’.


Following the publication of twelve peer reviewed papers by one particular author she became an associate professor.


Clitoral Hermeneutics? Strange name?


Maybe they called it that because they didn’t want the men to find it?


I am in the constituency today for meetings and surgeries and then off to London to speak at a dinner. My conference blogs will start tomorrow and I will be blogging over the weekend.
