Whistleblowers

Speaking Fearlessly in the Public Square

 Date Published: Monday. Nov. 25

On the heels of publishing her latest book, Whistleblowers: Honesty in America From Washington to Trump in September, Professor Allison Stanger of Middlebury College joined President Hibbs onstage at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture for a collaborative, timely discussion, "Speaking Fearlessly: The Demise of Discourse on Campus and in the Public Square.”

The evening’s event was moderated by Dallas Morning News Deputy Editor of Editorials and UD’s Director of Journalism Rudy Bush, BA ’97, and hosted in partnership with the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Institute.

In 2017, Stanger was attacked at her own school for doing what professors are called to do: introducing and discussing difficult ideas. The saga that ensued resulted in a mob injuring Stanger. “There is a crisis in the humanities in this country … and we need more people like Tom Hibbs at the helm of our universities,” said Stanger, professor of international politics and economics at Middlebury College and senior fellow at Harvard.

Prior to speaking at the Dallas Institute, Stanger visited UD’s Irving campus to participate in the Gupta College of Business’ Leaders & Legends Speaker Series with the talk “Whistle-Blowers and the Impact on Global Business.”
