Is Carol Swain Charlie? or Hateful?

Inside Higher Ed
January 19th, 2015

A prominent Vanderbilt University professor published a column last week that is being called hate speech for its critique of Islam in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris. Angry students held a protest Saturday that attracted many critics of the professor -- as well as a prominent supporter who is accusing the students and Vanderbilt of censoring her defense of the professor.
The professor is Carol Swain, a professor of political science and law, who is the author of numerous scholarly books published by top presses. On her own website, she identifies herself this way: "From high school dropout and teenage mother to esteemed Vanderbilt University law professor, Carol M. Swain is passionate about empowering others to confidently raise their conservative voices in the public square. Dr. Swain’s education and experiences make her a credible and powerful force for change in today’s social and political climate where conservatives are intimidated to champion an often-unpopular message."
