I don't know how many Marmmailers or PEN-L'ers are familiar with this
guy nowadays since he is no longer much of a presence on the Internet.
He was never on Marxmail but on PEN-L where he first came to my
attention as a vehement defender of the Brenner thesis. After a number
of years, he swung completely in the other direction and began attacking
it. As I began reading the chapter on the divergence of West and East of
Anievas/Nisancioglu's "How the West Came to Rule", I was surprised to
see him mentioned as a defender of the idea that the West became
hegemonic because of its "higher intellectual and artistic creativity".
I went to the Wiki entry on him and was shocked to discover that this
sociology professor, who was born in Puerto Rico, has become a full-tilt
Duchesne is a vehement critic of immigrant multiculturalism
and political correctness in academe. Since the publication of his
2011 book, Duchesne has been arguing that the multicultural
interpretation of the West is part of a wider effort by established
elites to create heterogeneous race-mixed societies inside all
European-created nations through the promotion of mass immigration.
