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.
