If you're a fan of academic freedom, you might want to check this out. It's a somewhat lengthy piece, but the basic gist is that Richard Abrams, a psychology professor at Dickinson College, was denied tenure because he curated a poetry reading series that included experimental poets, some of whom were Flarf poets.
It's pretty involved, so just read about it, or I'll be here all night recapping it. In the meantime, I encourage anyone who might read this to boycott anything involving the Dickinson English department. (As if you had actually heard of Dickinson in the first place, right? Ha.)
UPDATE. You might have discovered that the link above no longer works. GEE, I WONDER WHY. Read the next best thing.
