The struggle over innovation versus tradition is playing out at Duke University. Duke’s chapter of the National Association of Scholars (NAS) opposes some of the “radical” ideas the English Department is teaching. While some say the argument is over curriculum, others suggest the NAS is more concerned with the salaries as they believe the English Department is taking money away from their programs. Regardless, the fight has made some professors nervous that the attention will make them justify and defend what they do and teach.

Abstract:
Duke University and Hospital are being sued by Betty Eldreth. Eldreth received unnecessary radiation and surgery based on results from an experimental procedure that was performed without her consent. The results indicated Eldreth had cancer, but she was found to not have cancer after the surgery and radiation were complete. Evidence suggests that the experimental procedure was used improperly and this was known some at Duke who failed to stop the practice. This has caused the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations to look into allegations of fraud and conflict of interest in use of the test.
