Helen Pluckrose and Peter Boghossian have taken up positions at the front lines of the culture war. To highlight what they saw as ideological capture of the universities, they submitted hoax papers to high profile journals in the social sciences – what they called the ‘grievance studies’ hoax. Seven were published, including one on ‘Rape Culture’ in dog parks, and one with extracts from Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
