At Heterodox Academy:

Alice Dreger is a historian of medicine and science, a sex researcher, and an advocate of academic freedom. She is the author of Galileo’s Middle Finger: Heretics, Activists, and One Scholar’s Search for Justice. In this episode, HxA’s Chris Martin talks to her about why she blames university brand management, and the corporatization of academia more broadly, for the policing of research, which has now become common in academic life. They talk about how the increasing reliance on external research funding has spurred attention to university brand management, and Alice also presents her recommendations for what to do if you are caught up in an academic controversy.
