Re: the meritocracy of academe:
A prof of *literature* gets @nytimes coverage for history using the same old sources to make the same old arguments, while scholars w groundbreaking research & methodology are overlooked bc they lack #IvyLeague pedigree...

Or is because they are not the "right" race or gender?
And so a subtweet from above:

Go buy Prof. Richard Blackett's fantastic new book on the exact same subject. It's based on much more extensive research & offers *new* conclusions. @DGershenowitz @cambUP_History
