Mandatory Retirement Age at Oxford

Scott Jaschik of Inside Higher Education writes that the University of Oxford in the UK implemented a mandatory retirement age of 69 a couple years ago, and that faculty in poetry have argued that this policy "is particularly ill suited for their field." Jaschik quotes a letter published in the Guardian by the British poet Michael Horovitz, stating his perspective as to the flaws of the mandatory retirement policy, particularly for poetry faculty. Inside Higher Education also notes that such a policy "would violate antibias laws in the United States."
