Proposed MLA 2021 Just-In-Time Roundtable Session: The Limits of Academic Freedom at Religious Colleges and Universities
This roundtable invites short reflections on the tensions and limits of teaching and studying literature at religious colleges and universities. Do institutional commitments, positions, and documents (conduct oaths, pledges, church constitutions, and doctrinal statements) as well as campus cultures, constituencies, and attitudes implicitly and explicitly limit what can be taught and published? How have you navigated, resisted, and/or adapted to these limits?
Per Just-In-Time Session guidelines, accepted panelists must be MLA members by Sept. 22.
Please note that MLA 2021 will be a virtual convention that takes place online (https://www.mla.org/Convention/MLA-2021).
