Edward Said, Teacher


We recently went through a huge controversy over faculty bias at
Columbia University’s department of Middle East Studies. Some
claimed that the charges were either trumped up or isolated
incidents. Now it turns out that they were just the tip of the
iceberg. And there’s a remarkable twist. It isn’t just the
omnipresent followers of Edward Said who don’t know how to give a
fair hearing to both sides. Now we learn that Edward Said himself
apparently orchestrated and set the tone for the disastrously
politicized teaching atmosphere at Columbia. Details at Martin
Kramer’s Sandbox.
