University of Oregon college republicans, Josh Lusby, left to right, Anthony Warren, and Ben Mortire protest outside the Erb Memorial Union Ballroom where Ward Churchill will speak at the University of Oregon, May 19, 2006, in Eugene, Oregon. Churchill is an American writer, liberal activist, and academic. He is a tenured full professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and author of over twenty books and hundreds of essays. Churchill was widely discussed and criticized in the media during 2005, stimulated by publicity given to a 2001 essay in which Churchill questioned the innocence of many of the people killed in the World Trade Center attacks, labeling them as "technocrats" and "little Eichmanns." A University of Colorado investigation concluded in May 2006 that Churchill has repeatedly engaged in "serious research misconduct," including "falsification, fabrication, plagiarism, failure to comply with standard procedures regarding author names on publications and other serious deviations from accepted practices".
