Description

In this episode we talked with Professor Dorian Abbot, a geophysicist from the University of Chicago whose views on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) led to the cancellation of a public lecture he was scheduled to give at MIT this autumn. 

We discuss how Professor Abbot gradually became concerned enough about what he saw happening at his institution with regard to DEI that he felt compelled to raise a dissenting voice concerning on affirmative action and academic freedom.

Here is a paper by Peter Arcidiacono of Duke University, whose work Professor Abbot references in the pod, which argues that affirmative action may harm its beneficiaries in many cases: https://www.aeaweb.org/articles?id=10.1257/aer.20130626 And here is Professor Arcidiacono talking on Glenn Loury's show about more of his research:
