York University ‘harassment adviser’ accused of posting anti-Semitic photo on Facebook
Luckily, it’s York University in the UK! Phew. Makes for a bit of a change…
Damian the Indispensible observes:
What does strike me as curious is that this picture was displayed by someone who, in addition to holding down a non-academic job in the biology department, is also employed by the Equal Opportunities Office to act as a confidential adviser about harassment.
Collingwood says that he “does not personally share the views expressed in the picture” – but he is a stalwart of the York Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, so you can see how the confusion might arise. He’s also a member of Green Left, Friends of the Earth, Republic UK and the North Yorkshire Humanist Group. You really wouldn’t want to get stuck in a lift with him.
