Interview With Michael Rectenwald - Springtime for Snowflake

Postby cowboycraig » Thu Oct 25, 2018 9:10 pm

We interviewed Michael and tried to "deep dive" into "What is a Snowflake?". It isn't a hit piece, it is for reals.

Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D., is a professor of Liberal Studies at New York University, where he teaches writing and cultural history. He received a B.A. in English from the University of Pittsburgh, an M.A. from Case Western Reserve University, and a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University. At age twenty, Michael was an apprentice poet to Allen Ginsberg at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

Springtime for Snowflakes: 'Social Justice' and Its Postmodern Parentage is a daring and candid memoir. NYU Professor Michael Rectenwald - the notorious @AntiPCNYUProf - illuminates the obscurity of postmodern theory to track down the ideas and beliefs that spawned the contemporary social justice creed and movement. In fast-paced creative non-fiction, Rectenwald begins by recounting how his Twitter capers and media exposure met with the swift and punitive response of NYU administrators and fellow faculty members. The author explains his evolving political perspective and his growing consternation with social justice developments while panning the treatment he received from academic colleagues and the political left.

Rectenwald's brain is like a clown car: Small, and filled with Clowns.

I consider a snowflake as someone who is so sensitve that they melt when the slightest bit of heat is turned up. Rectenwald immediately sued 4 colleagues, said he felt threatened and ask for a paid leave once he got scoldy emails from NYU staff.

Word, I like the way you see it. Had not really thought from this angle. Nobody slips a snowflake past you!
