Dangerous Professors: Academic Freedom and the National Security Campus

Dangerous Professors: Academic Freedom and the National Security Campus Malini Johar Schueller and Ashley Dawson, eds.

University of Michigan Press, 2009
ISBN: 9780472050635

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 then to analyze the ways in which this concept protects but also limits critical voices on campus. Including essays from academics (Ward Churchill and Robert Jensen) 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.
