The Chronicle Piece on #Femfog

by J J Cohen

Here is Rio Fernandes reporting on the discovery that Allen Frantzen has published misogynistic web pages. There is more to the story (stay tuned!) and it is not going away any time soon.

I wish that I could travel back in time and edit the last quote from me, which does not convey what I wanted to say. Here is what I meant:
"There are many female medievalists and their allies who have come out against Frantzen because he does not represent the field. Honestly, young female medievalists are shaping the future of the field at this point because they are doing the most interesting work."
I have never mastered the phone as technology and therefore give terrible interviews on it.
