Academic Freedom at a Global University: A Transnational Perspective

March 20, 2019, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT

Have the recent controversies at the University of Michigan raised questions in your mind about your role in the classroom, lab, or studio? Are you now curious about what this means for you as a student-scholar? Are you hungry for discussion?

What is academic freedom? Is it relevant in this day and age? What does it mean at a global institution like the University of Michigan? How does the internationalization of higher education affect it? What does it mean to those who hail from abroad? Does academic freedom globalize? How do scholars and students who move across the world attend to its intricacies, obligations, and limitations? These are some of the questions that we will attempt to answer as part of our conversation. Please join us! Lunch will be served.
