Additional Information on Imagining America

* As noted in the profile, investigative journalist Matthew Vadum has pointed out that the “publicly engaged scholarship” which Imagining America embraces is a euphemism for what Vadum describes as “politicized scholarship” aimed at “righting the perceived wrongs of the past and changing society in furtherance of so-called social justice.” In an effort to ensure that such indoctrination will remain immune from challenges by anyone objecting to the use of taxpayer dollars to fund it, IA’s Tenure Team Initiative on Public Scholarship seeks to “change campus policies related to tenure and promotion in order to free faculty, administrators, and students from the impediments of undertaking publicly engaged art and scholarship, and to ensure such work is formally recognized as a legitimate scholarly and creative activity.”
