Professor Wax addresses Penn audience regarding op-ed controversy

There is an account, of sorts, at the Penn student newspaper (it's sub-headline comletely mischaracterizes through innuendo what Wax said about slavery, judging from the account later in the body of the article--but this makes me wonder how reliable the whole thing is).   I can not tell to what extent Professor Wax addressed, if at all, the substantive (and devastating) criticism she receives from several of her colleagues.

UPDATE:  A friend at Penn points out that Professor Wax's entire talk can be viewed here.  I have not watched it, but may later.
