Cambridge University rescinds offer to Dr Jordan Peterson.

Cambridge University rescinds offer to Dr Jordan Peterson.

Cambridge University has rescinded its invitation of a visiting fellowship to an academic whose views on gender have been condemned by critics.

University of Toronto psychology professor Dr Jordan Peterson had planned to be with Cambridge's Faculty of Divinity for two months in autumn.

But on Wednesday the university took the invitation back after a review.

Dr Peterson said the faculty had "made a serious error of judgement in rescinding their offer to me".

The author has previously said he refuses to comply with Canadian laws compelling him to use the gender-neutral pronoun of an individual's choice, and in 2016 released a video lecture series questioning political correctness.

    

He also took aim at a campus culture of "social justice warrior, left-wing radical political activists".

Dr Peterson said he did not object to trans people or to choosing which traditional pronoun they prefer.
