Academic Freedom and Society
A one-day conference at the University of Warwick, Friday 2 June 2017
How can the history and philosophy of academic freedom and its representations in culture inform us about current debates around the place and function of the academic in society? This conference invites interdisciplinary and transnational perspectives on the question of academic freedom and university autonomy, both historically and in the current moment.
