Professor Accused of Academic Fraud

The History News Network reports this week that Ann Lane, a prominent professor of history and the Director of Studies in Women and Gender at UVa, may have committed the sort of academic fraud on her PhD dissertation which, if she were a University student, would certainly warrant honor charges and, likely, expulsion. (Lane is quoted as saying that UVa’s strict honor code is “pretty stupid.”) Lane provided a rebuttal, in which she accuses HNN of “shabby journalism,” who, in turn, accuses Lane of half-truths, deception, and having covered up her charges of plagiarism. There has been past discussion here on UVa’s Honor Code that might be useful for reference.
