Ask A Genius 184 – Academic Political Views (Part 2)

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

May 31, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: That influences the research questions. So if someone wants a research question or if someone wants to pitch a research question to a Bachelor’s Honor’s or thesis advisor, and if you were an instructor or tenured professor, who would you more likely want someone under you with regards to research: someone with a topic in line with your expertise or not in line with your expertise, knowing your topics will lean more Left-Liberal, even Marxist?

Rosner: Yes, the political landscape means the people who are conservative on campus as opposed to quietly conservative. There is a certain Ann Coulterishness among active conservatives that is an obnoxious torchbearer attitude among a lot of conservatives.

An anger at their underrepresentation and an eagerness to piss people off via taking aggressive stances.
