Are History Profs PC?

An American study attempts to quantify the degree of "political correctness" among American academics (broadly, they mean politically liberal, but particularly with strong views on race, gender and multicultural issues). Historians come out... well, a bit wishy-washy: not too many incorrects, fewer PC hardliners than other related disciplines, and a big bloc (50%) of moderately PC professors. Details here.

'Course this is the USA, and Planet America tends to be a world of its own on socio-cultural-political matters.
