To the Middlebury Political Science Department: Rescind Co-Sponsorship of Murray Lecture
This petition had 273 supporters
We the undersigned students of Middlebury College urge the Political Science faculty to rescind their co-sponsorship of Charles Murray's upcoming lecture on our campus. Political and civil discourse are vital to an academic environment; we hold that the Political Science Department and its students should engage with a broad spectrum of political and ideological views. However, we believe that Murray’s ideas have no place in rigorous scholarly conversation. Although Murray attempts to address issues pertinent to political science in Coming Apart, his massaged evidence and pseudoscience cannot be legitimately included in political science discourse, especially given his alarming views on genetically linked race and class dominance. We are therefore disappointed that a department in our academic institution is lending validity to his presence. We ask again that the Political Science department revoke its co-sponsorship of Charles Murray’s upcoming lecture. Thank you.
