Academic Freedom and Academic Lives A Cluster for Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly

Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Academic Freedom and Academic Lives


The concept of “academic freedom”—always contested—has been muddied, polarized, and done violence to in recent years. This special cluster of Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly invites contributions from a variety of perspectives that seek to illuminate the politics of academic freedom and censorship in the face of rapidly escalating racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist political currents. Essays connected to personal experience, or that situate questions of academic freedom within the problem of experience as a category of scholarship and public knowledge, are particularly welcome and encouraged.
