Registration is Open for "Disgrace: Shame, Punishment, and Redemption"

National Association of Scholars

Disgrace: Shame, Punishment, and Redemption in American Higher Education
Chapman University | January 11 and 12
Orange, California

Theme
At this conference, the National Association of Scholars intends to discuss “disgrace” in two ways: disgrace as a tactic of the progressive left, and the real disgrace that falls on colleges and universities that countenance such tactics. These tactics include attempting to destroy people through false accusations loudly repeated, and to shame people into resignation while using success at this to intimidate everyone else into silent self-censoring conformity.

Keynote
Heather Mac Donald 
is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a contributing editor of City Journal, and a New York Times bestselling author. She is a recipient of the 2005 Bradley Prize. Mac Donald’s work at City Journal has covered a range of topics, including higher education, immigration, policing, homelessness and homeless advocacy, criminal-justice reform, and race relations. Her writing has appeared in the Wall Street JournalWashington PostNew York TimesLos Angeles TimesThe New Republic, and The New Criterion. Mac Donald's newest book, The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture (2018), argues that toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture.
