Is this the right time to tell the Penn English department to ‘get thee to a nunnery’? From The College Fix:
Early this month a group of University of Pennsylvania students removed a portrait of William Shakespeare from the school’s Fisher-Bennett Hall and replaced it with a picture of black, feminist, lesbian poet Audre Lorde.
But now, “a collage of 88 different writers and filmmakers” has been put in place of Lourde.
According to The Daily Pennsylvanian, “[e]ach portrait on the current collage represents a figure from the English Department’s ’50 Book List,’ a list of texts chosen by Ph.D. students to be tested on at the beginning of their second year. Both Shakespeare and Lorde are included on the poster.”
