“Why Middlesex Matters”
John Protevi pens an article for Inside Higher Ed in which he asks, and answers,
Why were so many American academics, many of them besieged by budget crises at their own universities, so upset at this decision made so far away? Why did Middlesex matter to those thousands who so quickly became involved, and why should it matter to all American academics, even those who are only just now hearing of it?
If you happen to be one of those just hearing about it, John’s link-rich article is the place to start.
