Academic Freedom, the Next Casualty of War?
Today's InsideHigherEd.com has an op-ed I've written about the proposed Department of Defense restrictions of campus free speech. The first comment is posted to the article, denouncing my "anti-military attitude" and claiming that I must have been "anti-military" my whole life (what, since birth?). Of course, if you read the piece carefully, you'll note that I'm not opposed to the military at all, but I believe academic freedom can't be superseded by military fiat.
You can read my previous InsideHigherEd.com commentaries, my AAUP Manifesto, on Ward Churchill's footnotes, on the defeat in Hosty v. Carter, and why it matters to freedom of the student press,
