I was interviewed on Comcast Public Perspectives in the Chicagoland area on academic freedom in July, but they just posted the YouTube video. The half-hour show covers the AAUP Illinois Conference Committee A, the Finkelstein and Salaita cases, the contingent faculty explosion, and the Douglas Crowe case at Bradley University. I speak only for myself but was identified as the chair of Illinois AAUP Committee A, and by my current academic appointment. There is a ten-second gap before the video begins.
