Program Title: Cynthia Wright: The Erosion of Academic Freedom
Description: Academic-activist Cynthia Wright discusses: the context of renewed interest in the concept of academic freedom, its historical roots, how academic freedom is tied to the regulation of Israeli Apartheid speech on Canadian campuses, and how academic freedom must be reconceptualized and reconnected to broader social movements such as education not deportation campaigns, off-campus debate of colonialism and occupations, etc.
