Response to Cary Nelson

By Robert Warrior

Abstract:

Pointing out the many errors of fact and interpretation in an essay in this issue of the Journal of Academic Freedom by Cary Nelson about the appointment of Steven Salaita at the University of Illinois, this response seeks to set the record straight against Nelson’s accusations. Though Nelson paints his campus colleagues in American Indian Studies as incompetent perpetrators of academic fraud, the facts from this response by one of the administrative principals and a direct witness to documents and records suggest that Nelson is in fact the one grinding a political ax.
