I am a freshman at the University of Chicago College, and I recently co-founded Academic Sanity Consortium with Christopher Phillips and UChicago Professor Rachel Fulton Brown. We are proud to announce Academia’s COVID Failures, a symposium that will take place on May 19, 2023, from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM on the University of Chicago campus.
Our symposium will be live-streamed on this website. There will be three separate panel discussions about how power-hungry academics have sabotaged intellectual inquiry on university campuses and how the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated such ivory tower rot.
Presenters will include Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University; Scott Atlas, a fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution; Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn; and Professor Jonathan Turley of the George Washington University Law School.
