We’re pleased to announce that the new volume of the AAUP’s Journal of Academic Freedom is out today. The Journal publishes scholarship on academic freedom and on its relation to shared governance, tenure, and collective bargaining.
Current and past volumes of the Journal of Academic Freedom, which receives funding from the AAUP Foundation, are freely available on the AAUP’s website. A table of contents for the current volume, edited by Jennifer H. Ruth of Portland State University, appears below with links to each of the articles.
Ruth has issued a call for papers for the 2017 volume of JAF, which will explore the status of academic freedom as concept and reality today. For additional details, please review the call for papers.
