Curtis is a political science professor whose most recent publication is on the politically correct topic of multicultural education. Over recent years, her behavior has been a caricature of an academic radical: shortly after 9/11, she wildly (and, of course, without any evidence) condemned an alleged attempt to silence professors who encourage students to probe the history of U.S. foreign policy in the effort to understand the September 11th attacks. She protested efforts to remove from the ranks of the nations faculty those who feel shame, fear and anger over the violent suppression that the United States has undertaken in so many states across the globe in the near and the distant past; and those who feel distress over the long-time support by the U.S. of the mujahadeen in Afghanistan, whose oppression of women has been brutal.
Oh, she is a member of the Gang of 88 that decided to indict Dowd for raping the stripper at Duke. Apparently, she cooked his grades because he was, well, a lacrosse player...
