Iowa Libertarian on UNI prof breakin' out of state kneecaps
Oh, yes...you have to check out Royce over at Iowa Libertarian and his splendid research on a little homegrown intrigue perking at the University of Northern Iowa.
I would love to see the Regents' lobby defend this UNI professor cum political hatchet man to conservative leaning Ph.D. candidates everywhere. No really, a faculty member at UNI contacted the academic advisor of a PhD student in an unrelated field at
Chilling. And this example provides considerable support to my assumption that blogging politics can have real professional costs.
Royce is organizing a blog-in, of sorts, asking that if we find this particular behavior unacceptable, we let the folks up at UNI know. BTW -- a State 29 post with a letter to the editor written by our UNI prof.
Follow the links. Follow the chain of comments, counter comments and events. If you think it's right and proper, Email the History Professor, his Department Head and the President of UNI: Robert Koob. His office can be reached here: Office of the President, 20 Seerley Hall, University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, IA 50614-0705 - (319) 273-2566 (voice); (319) 273-6494.
I also suggest that we might want to drop a line to some of the conservative legislators sitting on
