There is a big hullabaloo over some completely unknown person being denied tenure at Harvard. She is supposedly in my field but I had to Google her because I never came across this person’s name in any context. I’ve been in the field for 20 years, reading voraciously on many academic subjects, visiting tons of conferences, and publishing like a crazy bunny. But I have no idea who this is.
People immediately assume that racismsexism is to blame but this person is simply not of the tenured-at-Harvard stature.
