About this product
- DescriptionThis is a provocative essay collection on academic freedom in the modern world. Through various examinations of past and current threats to academic freedom, Dangerous Professors investigates the status of such freedom in the aftermath of 9/11. Bringing together scholars in literature, law, and American Studies, the collection of essays seeks to understand academic freedom in historical perspective by focusing on the key documents that have defined its current meaning, and to then analyze the ways in which this concept protects but also limits critical voices on campus. Including essays from academics (Ward Churchill and Sami Al-Arian) who have been directly involved in recent controversies about academic freedom, Dangerous Professors provides a timely and critical look at the battle over educational curricula and institutions today.
