The professional bean counters of academia are at it again.

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.”
