Paul Gottfried, a guest lecturer of the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI), recently published an article on academic freedom for the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal. In the article “Sorry, Students but I Have Never Espoused Racism or White Supremacy,” Gottfried discusses the fallout from his lecture on the topics of American conservatism and fascism at Hamilton College last October.
Paul Gottfried is Raffensperger Professor of Humanities Emeritus at Elizabethtown College. He has written extensively on such topics and is the author of eleven books, most recently Leo Strauss and the Conservative Movement in America (Cambridge University Press, 2011), and more than one hundred scholarly articles. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1983.
