I am pleased to introduce the newest member of the National Association of Scholars staff, Christopher Sanfilippo, who joined us as the Lead Researcher for our new DEI in the Sciences Project on July 6, 2021.
In a growing number of university STEM departments, students and faculty are facing increasing calls to promote anti-scientific dogmas such as diversity, equity, and inclusion; “Anti-Racism”; social justice; and Critical Race Theory above the scientific method and factual analyses. Christopher will investigate the extent to which such departments have shifted their focus away from science instruction and toward these pseudo-scientific alternatives.
Christopher holds a BS in physics from MIT, where he did research in quantum Hamiltonian complexity, and an MA in Government from the University of Texas at Austin, where he wrote a thesis on Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s critique of the Enlightenment. He currently lives in Austin, Texas.
Please join me in welcoming Christopher to NAS; he may be reached at [email protected].
Peter Wood is President of the National Association of Scholars and author of 1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project.
