Again and again, we are seeing evidence of the left’s agenda becoming more important than the subject matter being taught. It will eventually eclipse the subject completely.
Campus Reform reports:
Texas A&M English prof candidates better have a ‘feminist’ or ‘queer’ ‘agenda’
Texas A&M University-Commerce is seeking a new assistant English professor, preferably one versed in topics such as social justice or “queer” and “decolonial” “rhetorics.”
The job listing reads like that of a typical tenure track English professor opening but specifies that the ideal candidate’s background would include an “active research agenda” in one of a number of specified categories. Aside from “community writing,” and “public rhetoric,” the desired topics are largely focused on writing through social justice or identity politics-themed lenses.
In addition to researchers of “writing in social justice,” the listing also calls for applicants with a background in “feminist,” “latinx,” “(trans)gender,” “decolonial,” “transnational,” or “queer” “cultural rhetorics.”
The proposed minimum annual salary for the selected candidate, who will start in August 2019, will be $66,666.60.
Texas A&M University-Commerce Chief Marketing Officer Scott Carson elaborated on the position while speaking with Campus Reform.
“A research agenda is simply a research plan specific to a discipline,” Carson said. “It details specific areas of research and the methodologies that will be used to answer questions. A research agenda, or plan, is essential in the professional development of a tenure-track professor.”
