Found this via the blog of my former professor, Jim Hynes.
Simply: hurray. Jim kept up with the controversy pretty well on his blog, so if you want to see the twists and turns it took, I advise reading him. Actually, I advise reading him generally. He writes about topics dear to me, including the moral complexity of nationhood/violence/ terrorism (The Wild Colonial Boy) and the machinations of academia (Publish and Perish; The Lecturer’s Tale). We also have virtually identical taste in films and television, so I enjoy his cultural criticism. Quite often he recommends something that I enjoy enormously.
