I’ll be in Mexico the next few days, underwater as much as possible; blogging will be sporadic, but very relaxed.
And while you are on the road a controversy explodes over whether Harvard faculty really read the dissertations of doctoral students…
“Richwine either relished in the controversy or didn’t care. In 2008, while at the American Enterprise Institute, he joined a panel discussing a new book from Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “Decades of psychometric testing,” said Richwine, “has indicated that at least in America you have Jews with the highest average IQ, usually followed by East Asians, and then you have non-Jewish whites, Hispanics, and then blacks. These are real differences. They’re not going to go away tomorrow.”
There are so many interesting aspects of this controversy… a dissertation committee on a join PhD program w FAS without an FAS faculty member… a dissertation on IQ without a faculty member with expertise in psychometrics or intelligence. Really, this is seriously daming to the Kennedy School’s academic integrity.
