The Battle over Studies of Faculty Bias
Gravois, John
Chronicle of Higher Education, v53 n21 pA8 Jan 2007
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) recently commissioned a study to review the research that finds liberal bias run amok in academe. Believing that the AFT is not a dispassionate observer of this debate, this article provides "The Chronicle of Higher Education's" survey of the genre. The studies reviewed include: (1) "Political Bias in the Administrations and Faculties of 32 Elite Colleges and Universities," David Horowitz and Eli Lehrer, Center for the Study of Popular Culture, 2003; (2) "Politics and Professional Advancement among College Faculty," Stanley Rothman, S. Robert Lichter, and Neil Nevitte, 2005; (3) "How Many Ward Churchills?," American Council of Trustees and Alumni, 2006; (4) "How Politically Diverse Are the Social Sciences and Humanities? Survey Evidence From Six Fields," Daniel B. Klein and Charlotta Stern, forthcoming; and (5) "Is the Academy a Liberal Hegemony?," John F. Zipp and Rudy Fenwick, 2006.
