《纽约客》介绍印度反转人士范达娜·席瓦的文章值得一读

8月24日出版的《纽约客》(New Yorker)发表了介绍印度著名反转人士Vandana Shiva(范达娜·席瓦)的长篇报道

文章提到席瓦喜欢称自己是一个核物理学家、量子物理学家或世界级的物理学家。她出版的书籍的内封介绍也往往称她是印度著名物理学家之一。但是当作者问席瓦曾在哪儿高就,她却罔顾左右而言他:你去Google吧。有意思的是,Google上关于她的传记只字不提她的任何与物理学相关的职位。

Shiva refers to her scientific credentials in almost every appearance, yet she often dispenses with the conventions of scientific inquiry. She is usually described in interviews and on television as a nuclear physicist, a quantum physicist, or a world-physicist. Most of her book jackets include the following biographical note: "Before becoming an activist, Vandana Shiva was one of India's leading physicists." When I asked if she had ever worked as a physicist, she suggested that I search for the answer on Google. I found nothing, and she doesn't list any such position in her biography.
