A second faculty member has resigned from Northwestern University
over its medical school’s reaction to a provocative article published in
a faculty journal.
“It’s so petty -- that’s what I kept saying -- it’s a frickin’ blow
job in 1978,” said Alice Dreger, a professor of medical humanities and
bioethics at Northwestern who gave her notice this week over the alleged
ongoing censorship of the university medical humanities faculty journal
Atrium, which has suspended publication after a funding cut.
“Of course, it wound up as the Streisand effect, where everybody pays attention,” Dreger added.
