The Bartlit Center presents a lunch discussion with Henry Reichman, chair of the AAUP Committee on Academic Freedom and author of The Future of Academic Freedom. Here is a summary of Hank’s book: In the wake of the 2016 election, challenges to academic freedom have intensified, higher education has become a target of attacks by conservatives, and issues of free speech on campus have grown increasingly controversial. In this book, Henry Reichman cuts through much of the rhetoric to issue a clarion call on behalf of academic freedom as it has been defined and defended by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) for over a hundred years. Along the way, he makes it clear that this is the issue of our day.
