Nearly three years after being hounded by mobs of student protesters for defending free speech, Nicholas Christakis has been awarded the Sterling Professorship, Yale University’s highest faculty honor. In 2015, when the university cautioned students to not wear “culturally appropriative” costumes for Halloween, Christakis objected, arguing that students should have the freedom to pick their own costumes and that others should tolerate that. He was promptly mobbed by angry protestors and attacked by fellow faculty, but stood his ground. This short film was made about the incident, and what it meant about Yale. Apparently the university is having second thoughts about the whole Orwellian thing.
