Fired Professor Teaches Anyway

Ward Churchill Back At CU

University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill was fired by the Board of Regents in July.

But that didn't stop Churchill from still teaching at CU this week.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, a group of student supporters rented out a classroom at CU's Eaton Humanities Building and invited Churchill to teach.

The topic? "ReVisioning American History: Colonization, Genocide and Formation of the U.S. Settler State."

And it appears this isn't a one-time-only event. Churchill handed out a class syllabus, which includes scheduled classes to be held Oct. 9 about colonialism, Oct. 23 on genocide and Oct. 30 about racism.

Churchill was fired because of academic-misconduct violations. He has not been been allowed to hold official classes on the campus since May 2006.
