France’s Min­is­ter of High­er Edu­ca­tion and Research, Frédérique Vidal.

 

France’s Min­is­ter of High­er Edu­ca­tion and Research, Frédérique Vidal, a mol­e­c­u­lar geneti­cist at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Nice-Sophia-Antipo­lis, has been one of the most out­spo­ken gov­ern­ment fig­ures decry­ing so-called “Islamo-gauchistes.” In response, more than 600 French aca­d­e­mics have demand­ed that Vidal step down. She has said that “Islamo-left­ism” is erod­ing French soci­ety and has pro­posed to study its effects on uni­ver­si­ties. Her aca­d­e­m­ic adver­saries argue that the pro­posed inquiry is designed to “defame” the teach­ing com­mu­ni­ty and will have a “dev­as­tat­ing” effect. “Just like in Orban’s Hun­gary, Bolsonaro’s Brazil or Duda’s Poland, post­colo­nial and decolo­nial stud­ies, the work on racial dis­crim­i­na­tion, gen­der stud­ies and inter­sec­tion­al­i­ty are specif­i­cal­ly targeted.”


France’s Fake “Islamo-Leftist” Crisis • by Raphaël Liogier


 

In an open let­ter pub­lished in Le Monde in Feb­ru­ary, they wrote, “We can only deplore the indi­gence of Frédérique Vidal, who is using the reper­toire of the far right about imag­i­nary ‘Islamo-left­ism.’” They refer to “Islamo-left­ism” as a “con­spir­a­cy the­o­ry,” and call for Vidal’s resignation. 

Vidal’s procla­ma­tions have also alarmed Pınar Selek, a Turk­ish soci­ol­o­gist, fem­i­nist anti-mil­i­tarist activist and writer, who lives in exile in France where she obtained French cit­i­zen­ship in 2017.

Pinar Selek’s open let­ter to Min­is­ter Vidal appeared in Medi­a­part on the 21st of Feb­ru­ary, 2021, as follows:

Mrs. Vidal,

You remem­ber me, the exiled teacher-researcher that you wel­comed, as part of the PAUSE Pro­gram, at the Uni­ver­sité Côte d’Azur, when you were its pres­i­dent. But we met for the first time, on Sep­tem­ber 30, 2019, in the frame­work of the press con­fer­ence of the PAUSE Pro­gram (Nation­al Pro­gram for the Emer­gency Recep­tion of Sci­en­tists in Exile). As Min­is­ter of High­er Edu­ca­tion and Research, you sup­port­ed this pro­gram. I think you still sup­port it. So much the bet­ter: you sup­port teacher-researchers who have fled polit­i­cal repres­sion in their coun­try and who need a space of free­dom to con­tin­ue to ask ques­tions and con­duct their research.

Since your recent state­ments on “Islamo-left­ism”, I am in a ter­ri­ble night­mare. Your speech awak­ens every­thing that I have expe­ri­enced and every­thing that my col­leagues in Turkey are expe­ri­enc­ing, under Islamo-fas­cism. I think that all the exiled sci­en­tists who are now host­ed by the PAUSE Pro­gram have entered the same night­mare, because they also know very well how aca­d­e­m­ic free­dom is nar­rowed when polit­i­cal pow­ers inter­vene in the sci­en­tif­ic field with the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion of the fight against ter­ror­ism. In gen­er­al, this is how it hap­pens. In Turkey, in Chi­na, in Iran. And today in France.

I want to tell you that if you don’t pub­licly retract what you said or if you don’t resign, the can­cer will spread and French sci­en­tists will go into exile. Don’t tell me that in France this is not pos­si­ble. Yes, Madame Vidal, it is. You know it bet­ter than I do: Petain­ism is not that old. Remem­ber in the 1940s, there were many French aca­d­e­mics in exile, refus­ing to sub­mit to fascism.

You may remem­ber that in the PAUSE press con­fer­ence, I began my speech by say­ing: “To spare you a vic­tim­iz­ing sto­ry and to dis­tance myself from an inte­gra­tionist vision impreg­nat­ed with colo­nial­ism, I thought I would first remind you that every coun­try needs peo­ple to pass on sci­en­tif­ic the­o­ries. Espe­cial­ly France which has great dif­fi­cul­ties of trans­la­tion. It needs sci­en­tists who have been trained in oth­er coun­tries; more­over, wel­com­ing sci­en­tists who are not sub­ject to author­i­ty can only be an asset for those who wel­come them.” I ask you to pay atten­tion to my words, which have been forged through a very tough expe­ri­ence of defend­ing the free­dom of research and the auton­o­my of sci­en­tif­ic production. 

Mrs Vidal, try to write sci­en­tif­ic arti­cles, with your aca­d­e­m­ic hat on, to ques­tion sci­en­tif­ic notions and join the col­lec­tive debate of researchers, but above all stop inter­ven­ing by putting on your polit­i­cal hat! Oth­er­wise you will start the infer­nal machine. And the machine of pow­er can go fur­ther than you can imagine.

–Pinar Selek


 

Mean­while, on the 4th of March, 2021, more than 200 Anglo­phone aca­d­e­mics pub­lished an open let­ter in Le Monde, denounc­ing the “witch hunt” led by Min­is­ter Frédérique Vidal. warn­ing that with Islamo-left­ism, “We can­not fail to under­line the res­o­nance with the dark­est moments of French history.”

Dear Colleagues,

We are writ­ing to express our pro­found dis­may at the recent request by the French Min­is­ter of High­er Edu­ca­tion and Research, Frédérique Vidal, for the CNRS (The French Nation­al Cen­tre for Sci­en­tif­ic Research) to inves­ti­gate alle­ga­tions of “Islamo-gauchisme” (Islamo-left­ism) in French uni­ver­si­ties. We regret that after pro­posed laws regard­ing the alleged threat of “sep­a­ratism” have fur­ther stig­ma­tized France’s Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ty, aca­d­e­mics are being blamed for the increas­ing­ly polar­ized atmos­phere. The pro­pos­al to mon­i­tor uni­ver­si­ty pro­fes­sors accused of “weaponiz­ing aca­d­e­m­ic research for polit­i­cal motives” effec­tive­ly amounts to a threat of cen­sor­ship and is wor­ry­ing for a num­ber of reasons: 

First, the state has no right to cen­sor research by aca­d­e­mics who draw on their exper­tise to advance the pro­duc­tion of knowl­edge. This is a dan­ger­ous prece­dent that can­not be tol­er­at­ed in demo­c­ra­t­ic soci­eties. The notion that cer­tain aca­d­e­mics are try­ing to “divide” soci­ety due to their “Islamo-left­ist” ideas in effect demo­nizes our col­leagues for their alleged ide­o­log­i­cal com­plic­i­ty with a reli­gious group in the name of pro­tect­ing the Repub­lic. This imme­di­ate­ly reminds one of some of the dark­est moments of French his­to­ry when a dis­course against “Judeo-Bol­she­viks” cre­at­ed an amal­gam between polit­i­cal and reli­gious commitments. 

Sec­ond, the approach­es now under attack were inspired by some of the most bril­liant minds of the French philo­soph­i­cal, lit­er­ary, and soci­o­log­i­cal tra­di­tions. As schol­ars work­ing in the Unit­ed States and else­where, we car­ry a great intel­lec­tu­al debt to France for train­ing thinkers such as Frantz Fanon, Albert Mem­mi, Hélène Cixous, Aimé Césaire, Paulette Nardal, Jean-Paul Sartre, Pierre Bour­dieu, Louis Althuss­er, Jacques Der­ri­da and Michel Fou­cault. Many of these fig­ures were not only tow­er­ing thinkers but were also engaged in pro­longed polit­i­cal strug­gles for the bet­ter­ment of our soci­eties. These com­mit­ted intel­lec­tu­als are pil­lars of the diverse approach­es that are now being attacked under the rubric of “post-colo­nial­ism.” That a coun­try which has advanced crit­i­cal thought should now turn its back on this nation­al pat­ri­mo­ny is short-sight­ed and dis­tress­ing. We ask not that every­one agree on the mer­its of these approach­es, only that French schol­ars have the right to debate them with their col­leagues and stu­dents should they so desire. 

Third, those respon­si­ble for high­er edu­ca­tion should address the press­ing need to find con­crete solu­tions to the prob­lem of racial dis­crim­i­na­tion in France, rather than car­ry out a witch hunt against researchers. In lieu of invit­ing schol­ars to help advance a com­mon strug­gle for equal­i­ty, the Min­is­ter of High­er Edu­ca­tion and Research is threat­en­ing them with cen­sor­ship. Instead of address­ing the dire sit­u­a­tion of stu­dents dur­ing a glob­al pan­dem­ic, or the real eco­nom­ic chal­lenges fac­ing pub­lic edu­ca­tion, Vidal and her col­leagues have depict­ed pro­fes­sors as the main threat to French universities.

Many sig­na­to­ries of this let­ter have ben­e­fit­ed from pro­longed aca­d­e­m­ic exchanges with French uni­ver­si­ties in insti­tu­tion­al as well as indi­vid­ual capac­i­ties. Eager that these col­lab­o­ra­tions with our French col­leagues can con­tin­ue in the spir­it of open debate, we again draw your atten­tion to the chill­ing effects that these threats of cen­sor­ship would have on aca­d­e­m­ic freedom. 

The fol­low­ing indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions endorse the let­ter in sup­port of aca­d­e­m­ic free­dom in France:
