Anarchist anthropologist David Graeber agreed to leave Yale University this spring, dropping an appeal over whether his termination was politically motivated, according to ap. David Graeber said he will teach two classes next semester, then take a yearlong paid sabbatical, after which he will not return:
"Normally, you get a sabbatical on the condition that you come back and teach the following year. I'm getting the sabbatical on the condition that I don't come back and teach."
His final two classes will be an introduction to anthropology and a course titled "Direct Action and Radical Social Theory."
