“This goes for the GUINNESS BOOK of the century!”
The professional bean counters of academia are at it again.
The College Fix reports:
Uh oh: Stanford history conference was ‘too white’ and ‘too male’
A history conference at Stanford University earlier this month is being panned for the crime of … featuring too many white male speakers.
The demographics of the Applied History conference organized by Hoover Institution fellow Niall Ferguson didn’t cause much of a stir — that is, until Howard University’s Ana Lucia Araujo tweeted about it on March 14.
Ferguson ended up expressing regret for not having more women participants:
“I have no doubt that there are many talented female historians whom I should have invited,” he wrote to The Stanford Daily. “I reproach myself for not knowing them and not having done more to get to know them.”
ALL-MALE HISTORY CONFERENCE. This goes for the GUINNESS BOOK of the century! A team of 30 white male historians will discuss Applied History at @Stanford . What a shame. https://t.co/IXFQqi2eN2 pic.twitter.com/GBRNzIFMvP
