Academic Freedom: The Whole World is Watching (for five seconds)

Tim Burke, Professor of History, Swarthmore College

Academic freedom has been invoked and attacked with furious intensity in the last five years, generally connected to reports of what someone said on social media or a video game gone viral. What happens when one person's free speech is a another person's threat to a safe or moral community? Burke will explore the history of this concept, its contradictions and wider contexts, including its relationship to autonomy in other professions and workplaces.

Burke teaches and writes about culture, politics and academia, often in his well-known blog \"Easily Distracted\" and in Facebook conversations.

This event is hosted at The Inn at Swarthmore. Fee is $45 per person to attend the dinner talk.
