“The Future of Academic Freedom”
Henry Reichman, Chair of American Association of University Professors Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure
Institute for the Humanities, 701 South Morgan, Stevenson Hall Lower Level
A presentation based on his new book: In the wake of the 2016 election, challenges to academic freedom have intensified, higher education has become a target of attacks by conservatives, and issues of free speech on campus have grown increasingly controversial. In this book, Henry Reichman cuts through much of the rhetoric to issue a clarion call on behalf of academic freedom as it has been defined and defended by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) for over a hundred years.
