Compromised?

Are scholars compromised by researching subjects which are close to their heart and about which they hold passionate views?

Can research be fueled by opposition to injustice and the need to refute ‘established’ knowledge that can be proved to be untrue. Should the gaps in our history be filled?

Just one example…. I wish I had been told about this amazing woman. Historically women were unable to reach the top echelon of the art world because without access to the male nude they could not paint historical or genre pictures.              Bacchus by Michaelina Wautier (1604–1689)
