Call for Proposals and Papers
Call for Papers: Journal of Academic Freedom, Volume 7
The AAUP’s Journal of Academic Freedom seeks scholarly articles that assess the impact on academic freedom of American universities’ partnerships with, and branch campuses and programs in, authoritarian countries.
How do these relationships require us to reconsider the philosophical and/or political foundations of the concept? And how is academic freedom experienced (or not) by faculty and administrators involved in these largely uncharted waters? We seek thorough and nuanced articulations of the ramifications for traditional notions of academic freedom when universities pursue collaborations with institutions situated in non-democratic countries. We also encourage treatments of the “global university” more generally.
In addition to the issues raised by globalization, we are interested in articles that address other major challenges to traditional notions of academic freedom. Electronic submissions should go to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 30, 2016, and must include an abstract of about 150 words.
