Without Borders: CLA Speaks - Jon A. Shields
Elephants Without Borders: Conservatives in the Academy
Jon A. Shields
6 P.M., Thursday, Oct. 13
Baker Building (180, Room 107)
Few seem to think conservatives should become professors. 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.”
Jon Shields is associate professor of government at Claremont McKenna College and coauthor of Passing on the Right: Conservative Professors in the Progressive University. His commentary has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, New Republic, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and the Weekly Standard.
This event is free and open to the public.
Event sponsored by Cal Poly College of Liberal Arts (CLA), the Modern Languages and Literatures Department and the Political Science Department.
