I'm not sure if she wrote a transcript that is available to read, but I just found her take on this story to be well thought out and engaging, while also highlighting specific papers and her opinions on them.

This is what she is referring to, although it says at the top it's a 47 minute read. So prepare to invest some time either way...

Academic Grievance Studies and the Corruption of Scholarship:

-corruption-of-scholarship
/

I might be reading this as well, since it was written by the three awesome individuals who did it.

Quote:

We spent that time writing academic papers and publishing them in respected peer-reviewed journals associated with fields of scholarship loosely known as “cultural studies” or “identity studies” (for example, gender studies) or “critical theory” because it is rooted in that postmodern brand of “theory” which arose in the late sixties. As a result of this work, we have come to call these fields “grievance studies” in shorthand because of their common goal of problematizing aspects of culture in minute detail in order to attempt diagnoses of power imbalances and oppression rooted in identity.

We undertook this project to study, understand, and expose the reality of grievance studies, which is corrupting academic research. Because open, good-faith conversation around topics of identity such as gender, race, and sexuality (and the scholarship that works with them) is nearly impossible, our aim has been to reboot these conversations. We hope this will give people—especially those who believe in liberalism, progress, modernity, open inquiry, and social justice—a clear reason to look at the identitarian madness coming out of the academic and activist left and say, “No, I will not go along with that. You do not speak for me.”

This document is a first look at our project and an initial attempt to grapple with what we’re learning and what it means. Because of its length and detail, it is organized as follows, putting the factual information up front and more detailed explanations thereafter.

- Our methodology, which is central to contextualizing our claims;

- A summary of this project from its beginning until we were eventually exposed and forced to go public before we could conclude our research;

- An explanation of why we did this;

- A summary of the problem and why it matters;

- A clear explanation of how this project came to be;

- The results of our study, including a full list of all of the papers we submitted, their final outcomes, and relevant reviewer comments to date;

- A discussion of the significance of the results;

- A summary of what may come next

Here's an article written on it... The underlined part probably being my favorite part of the hoax.

Quote:

Why do men go to Hooters? This hardly seems like an academic question.

How about: “An Ethnography of Breastaurant Masculinity: Themes of Objectification, Sexual Conquest, Male Control, and Masculine Toughness in a Sexually Objectifying Restaurant?” That has a certain scholarly ring.

The latter was the title of one of several papers published in credible journals over the past year, but were revealed to be a hoax earlier this month. Others include a discussion of canine rape culture at a dog park; a proposal of a theory that encouraging men to anally self-penetrate would combat transphobia; and a paper on “Solidarity Feminism as an Intersectional Reply to Neoliberal and Choice Feminism” that replaced the anti-Semitic phrases in Hitler’s Mein Kamf with feminist buzzwords. In total, seven of the 20 false papers the hoaxters submitted were accepted by peer-reviewed journals.

Will this help Liberals start to recognize the Fake News that they constantly consume unquestioningly?

I don't see why it would do that.

But I do see this as a sign that people within academia have had enough and are beginning to find ways to fight back against the poison that they're indoctrinating kids with today.

Can't do anything about the Rachel Maddows and Keith Olbermanns of the world now, but maybe we'll start seeing more talking heads in the future that come from a place of objectivity instead of everything they say coming from "feels".

Honestly, I'm hopeful that there will be legitimate news outlets to rival Fox News down the road. Lots of poison coming from that way as well.

Yes I did.

I told you I'm not a Republican, and I have plenty evidence of that on these boards dating back to 2006.

The fact that these academics are Liberals makes this much more important than if they were right wingers because they'd be labeled as trolls, alt-right Nazis or accused of being on Putin's payroll by AILs like you and RF.



But I guess that's going to happen anyhow.

Here's something you can read when you finish Hop on Pop...

Left-wing liberals who are opposed to the identity politics developments on the left increasingly find ourselves accused of being right wing, referred to as “right wing” and scornfully urged to admit that we are right wing by identitarian lefties. ~Helen Pluckrose
