Anyone know of an academic historian who has been forced from tenure for publishing?
Once a Prof has tenure they're pretty near impossible to sack for academic reasons.
The whole idea of tenured profs is that they are paid to research new ideas.
These speculative lads tend not to have risen very high up the academic ladder at all.
Some haven't even stepped on the first rung.
Would be interested if anyone knows of a single formerly tenured Prof ( someone with a PhD for starters) sacked for publishing 'speculative History' materials.
