What's Liberal About The Liberal Arts? -- a review
My (lengthy by blog standards) take on the book is below the fold:
UPDATE: Comments are down here -- but this review has been cross-posted over at The Valve, so say what you think over there.
What’s Liberal About The Liberal Arts? By Michael Bérubé. New York: W.W. Norton, 2006.posted by Dan on 11.01.06 at 03:39 PM
"...I truly loathe the debate about liberal bias in the academy. It’s one of those questions that rears its head every year or two, at which point the same stale arguments are trotted out and not much of note is said."
The current edition of the journal "Critical Review" has some interesting pieces on bias in media and in the social sciences. Have a look. Maybe your opinion will change.
Here are a few articles:
FACULTY PARTISAN AFFILIATIONS IN ALL DISCIPLINES: A VOTER-REGISTRATION STUDY | Christopher F. Cardiff and Daniel B. Klein
PROFESSORS AND THEIR POLITICS: THE POLICY VIEWS OF SOCIAL SCIENTISTS | Daniel B. Klein and Charlotta Stern
A SOCIAL-SCIENCE PERSPECTIVE ON MEDIA BIAS | Tim Groseclose and Jeffrey Milyo
WHAT CONSERVATIVE MEDIA? THE UNPROVEN CASE FOR CONSERVATIVE MEDIA BIAS | William G. Mayer
For the record, I do not work for the journal but I am a subscriber.posted by: E.M. Daniel on 11.01.06 at 03:39 PM [permalink]
