I must say, it was very nice for the Ethnic Studies department at Boulder to tell us why it deserves to be closed down. (Of course, they were trying to argue just the opposite, but no matter.)

Just one comment: Predictably, the department views its mission as that of “introduc[ing] the diverse perspectives of historically underrepresented communities into the curriculum.” Yet “by definition,” they claim that requires them to “counter the standard ‘canon’ of the humanities and social sciences.” By definition! Worse still, as the letter makes clear, they want to be able to do that without public criticism.
