Elephants Without Borders: Conservatives in the Academy
Jon A. Shields
6 P.M., Thursday, Oct. 13
Baker Building (180, Room 107)

While the left fears an invasion of their citadel by conservatives marching to orders from the Koch brothers, the right steers young conservatives away from a professorial vocation by lampooning its leftism. In this talk, Jon Shields will discuss what has been described as the “first reliable study of academic conservatives.”
