Bye Bye Barrett
Well, at least he will have more time now to dedicate towards finding those hijackers...
Former University of Wisconsin lecturer Kevin Barrett was denied a fall teaching position he had applied for in the English department, university officials confirmed in July.
Barrett, who brought a great deal of scrutiny to UW last year for his outspoken defense of a Sept. 11 conspiracy theory, wanted to teach a 300-level English course on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales but was not hired because the other candidates were more qualified, according to UW spokesperson Brian Mattmiller.
“The UW-Madison English department received three applications to teach the fall 2007 course on Chaucer. The person who was ultimately chosen … was the best qualified and most experienced candidate,” Mattmiller said.
