    “Cultural critic Camille Paglia made pop kitsch an object of academic study and ushered in an era of frivolous academic programs based on fill-in-the-blank studies, accompanied by activist student bodies making administration-bloating demands.” (italics added)

    I thought that was the gist of her criticism, not that she liked strip clubs and conservatives don’t.

    Paglia is certainly an interesting person. I cannot say that I have ever read any of her books as just a bit too long for the subject.

    Camille Paglia may be a symbol of the dumbing down of academia, but I doubt she is the cause.  The cause was college instructors trying to offer elective courses that students would sign up for.
