We are pleased to announce the publication of Volume 9 of the AAUP’s Journal of Academic Freedom. The journal features recent scholarship on academic freedom and its relation to contemporary crises of austerity, shared governance, tenure, and collective bargaining. This year’s volume focuses on the intersections of academic freedom and free speech, and the debates these concepts generate, in higher education today and in historical context.
Highlights from the volume include contributions by Stephen C. Finley, Biko M. Gray, and Lori Latrice Martin on “white virtual mobs” targeting African American scholars; by Johnny Eric Williams on double standards for academic freedom protections; by Leah Hollis on the effects of bullying on faculty governance and morale; by Elizabeth Esch, Megan Jones, and David Roediger on the fight against campus carry in Kansas; and by Blanca Minerva Torres-Olave and María Elena Torres-Olave on the chilling impact of using biometric technologies to monitor faculty.

The Journal of Academic Freedom is supported by funding from the AAUP Foundation.
