Evergreen Protests of 2016-2017: The Bibliography: September - December 2018

Articles September 2018

Davis, Glyn.  "Special pleading: free speech and Australian universities".  The Conversation.  14 December, 2018.

A long essay responding to a national discussion in Australia about free speech at universities.  The author reviews evidence, and concludes that ". . . to date those asserting a crisis have provided no systematic evidence of a meaningful, sustained and growing threat to free speech on campus" in Australia.  

Evergreen angle:  

"The free speech controversy relies heavily on American examples, with the implication that Australia is, or will, travel down the same path.

The dependence on US material is striking. The 2017 Audit of Free Speech on Australian Campuses by the Institute of Public Affairs  opens its discussion of “substantial hostility to free speech” not with Australian content but with American cases – Middlebury College, Evergreen State College, and widely reported clashes at the University of California Berkeley over an appearance by “conservative provocateur” Milo Yiannopoulous."

Albrechtsen, Janet.  "Meet the frontrunners in a sinister race to the bottom".  The Australian.  20 October, 2018.  Opinion. (Full text for Evergreen users)

Albrechtsen critiques the "inanity of identity politics", with Elizabeth Warren a main target.

Evergreen angle:

"Bret Weinstein, the former professor of biology at Evergreen State College in Washington state, once described himself as "deeply progressive". The man who voted for Bernie Sanders and supported Occupy Wall Street was a natural fit at Evergreen, one of the most left-liberal colleges in the US - until the day he disagreed with campus orthodoxy. When Evergreen hosted an inversion of its "Day of Absence" and told white people to stay at home, Weinstein called it out as racism. His own side turned on him so swiftly and violently, he was forced to leave the college he had taught at for 14 years.

Weinstein found an intellectual home among free thinkers such as Jonathan Haidt, another left-liberal in the US pushing against this regressive tide of identity politics."

Blackford devotes a couple of pages to Bret Weinstein at Evergreen.  While very limited in scope, this is one of the more accurate and nuanced discussions.

Weinstein appears as a minor figure in this wide-ranging review of the self-styled IDW.  The one sentence on Evergreen is limited to the Day of Absence, saying that Weinstein's position on campus "became untenable" as a result.
