She had fallen between thecrack years ago and now, very dramatically, her independence has been richly rewarded. It is thestuff of which legends are made. To Broad, Big Science has become too conservative for its owngood and something like counterculture science is necessary as a corrective. Speculations inScience and Technology, a journal published in Australia, is an example of one such effort, as isTruzzi’s offbeat Center for Scientific Anomalies Research, Eastern Michigan University.

Steven Salaita: U. of I. destroyed my career – Chicago Tribune October 2, 2014

This is not only devastating to my family; it is a grave threat to faculty and students everywhere. Principles of free speech, academic freedom, and shared governance enable faculty and students to ask difficult questions and find answers that challenge conventional wisdom. It is anathema to this tradition to allow the elite to dictate to a public university who gets hired and what ideas are acceptable.For this reason, nearly 6,000 professors nationwide support boycotting the university, 16 departments have voted “no confidence” in the administration, and the Modern Language Association and Association of American University Professors, among dozens of other organizations, have demanded my reinstatement.
