Getting Postmodern scholarship nonsense published in gender and identity studies review journals

“Something has gone wrong in the university—especially in certain fields within the humanities. Scholarship based less upon finding truth and more upon attending to social grievances has become firmly established, if not fully dominant, within these fields, and their scholars increasingly bully students, administrators, and other departments into adhering to their worldview. This worldview is not scientific, and it is not rigorous. For many, this problem has been growing increasingly obvious, but strong evidence has been lacking. For this reason, the three of us just spent a year working inside the scholarship we see as an intrinsic part of this problem.

And so they wrote and submitted nonsensical papers that got published and reviewed, again and again and again...

Warning: Some of these papers may turn your stomach

      Thanks for the link. Very telling. Even a chapter from “Mein Kampf”, originally written by a radically progressive Man of the Year award winner, could be published and reviewed as an academic scholarship paper, when rewritten as, “Our Struggle is My Struggle: Solidarity Feminism as an Intersectional Reply to Neoliberal and Choice Feminism”, so that it would fit the loony postmodern narrative.
