    A University of Colorado professor who once compared some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi could learn within three weeks whether he can return to the classroom — or whether the university will pursue sanctions including dismissal. University President Hank Brown received a report Tuesday from a faculty committee regarding its hearing on alleged research misconduct by ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill. Brown has 15 business days to determine how to proceed, the university said. If Brown decides the are no grounds for dismissal, he could return Churchill to the classroom and close the case, or he could recommend sanctions...

    Embattled Colorado Professor Files Complaint Against Texas Detractor The Associated Press Published: Jun 9, 2005 BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, whose essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to Nazis led to an investigation into his scholarship and ethnicity, has filed a complaint against one of his accusers. Churchill's complaint to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, accuses assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown of academic misconduct. Brown has alleged Churchill fabricated crucial details in his argument that the Army committed genocide against Indians in the 1800s. In an e-mail to The Denver Post Wednesday, Brown said Churchill...

Initially expected to be done this week, DiStefano's report - which will help CU officials decide if there is cause to fire the tenured Churchill - has been pushed back to March 28. Churchill...

For all the ink devoted to the Ward Churchill case, the Denver dailies have done virtually nothing to investigate the dysfunctional campus academic culture which led to the Churchill fiasco. Here are some of the questions the Denver media have not even attempted to probe: Why did the University of Colorado Arts and Sciences administration continue to promote and laud Churchill after the late-1990s publication of professor Thomas LaVelle's articles alleging extensive academic fraud and plagiarism on Churchill's part? Are there other academic frauds and plagiarists at CU whom the administration has...

    "Who is defending Ward Churchill, may I ask?" That was the question posed by John Holbo, a philosophy professor and contributor to the leftwing academic blog Crooked Timber, when news broke that the University of Colorado was harboring a leftist extremist in its midst. The gist of Holbo’s question was that no respectable person on the Left could come to the defense of someone so demonstrably in leave of his senses as the former Weatherman accomplice, academic fraud, and faux-Indian. One can only hope that the professor’s academic acumen is better than his news judgment. In fact, no sooner had...

CU has been contacted a number of times over the past 20 years by prominent figures within the American Indian community who have raised questions about Churchill's truthfulness, his scholarship and his ethnicity. Churchill responded Wednesday night that CU had conducted thorough investigations of each complaint over the years. "I came out as clean as a hound's tooth," he said.

(CBS4) Boulder County resident Duke Prentup has been a fan of native American art for as long as he can remember. That love of art took him to the home of Ward Churchill in the early 1980's, where Prentup bought several pieces of Churchill's art, including a serigraph titled "Winter Attack." "I have enjoyed them ever since immensely, they're obviously up inside my house," Prentup said. Last month came a stunning revelation, though, as as Prentup flipped through a 1972...

    The Honolulu Star-Bulletin, in an article yesterday, incorrectly quoted University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill as admitting that he was not American Indian. The story about Churchill's Tuesday night speech at the University of Hawaii-Manoa said the professor noted that his "white Republican" critics were asking, "Is he an Indian? Do we really care?" "Let's cut to the chase, I'm not," the quote in yesterday's paper continued. But a review of video and audio tapes of the speech shows that Churchill actually said: "Is he an Indian? "We really care.

"As for those in the World Trade Center," Churchill wrote, "well, really, let's get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break." Leaving aside for the moment the burning question of whether "gimme a break" is proper professorial nomenclature, Churchill continued blithely smearing...

He also said that the Wappinger tribe only thought they had rented a portion of Manhattan to the Dutch and that when they contested the sale the settlers massacred them, cut off their heads, and played kickball with the heads at roughly the site of the Twin Towers. The facts are easily googled. “A century before, Dutch settlers had built a wall to protect themselves from Indians, priates(sic), and other dangers.” -...

    Abstract: This is a work in progress that I am making available due to the current interest in Ward Churchill’s writings. I show that Churchill has committed research fraud, and very possibly committed perjury as well. This article analyzes Churchill’s fabrication of a genocide. Churchill invented a story about the US Army deliberately creating a smallpox epidemic among the Mandan people in 1837 by distributing infected blankets. While there was a smallpox epidemic on the Plains in 1837, it was entirely accidental, the Army wasn’t involved, and nearly every element of Churchill’s story is a total invention. My goal here...

With animal activists, there’s a growing gap between people who feel it’s not and others who feel that, for example, breaking into laboratories to liberate animals or burning down property is an effective way to stop abuse. Well, that’s an absurd framing in my view. Defining violence in terms of property—that basically nullifies the...
