"Academic Politics Are So Vicious, Precisely Because the Stakes Are So Small" -- Redux


The quote often attributed in various forms to Henry Kissinger came to mind as I read this article from the Memphis Flyer, cleverly titled God and Woman at Rhodes, describing a recently filed complaint for sexual harassment by a former Rhodes faculty member. She claims not only was she denied tenure, but she was sexually harassed by her female superior in the religion department at Rhodes, which is apparently described in the detailed 22 page pleading as "a hotbed of liberalism, atheism, and feminism with a dash of lesbianism for good measure." Rhodes officials were, wisely no doubt, withholding comment.
