Call for Papers: AAUP Conference

American Association of University Professors (AAUP)
Globalization, Shared Governance and Academic Freedom: An International Conference
June 12-13, 2009
Washington, DC

Among the questions the conference intends to explore are:

  • What is the state of academic freedom around the world and what challenges does it currently face in the United States?
  • Can scholarship survive in an era of secrecy and censorship?
  • Who is making decisions in the corporate university? What ever happened to shared governance?
  • What are the implications of the excessive use of contingent faculty and how do we address the issue?
  • How are public policy decisions at the national and state levels affecting higher education?
  • What are the personal, professional and institutional responsibilities of faculty and how can conflicting responsibilities be resolved?
  • How can faculty communicate the intricacies and subtleties of their disciplines to a broad, non-specialist audience?

Conference strands are not limited to the above topics. Presenters are invited to propose a wide range of issues related to academic freedom, governance, faculty work life, rights and responsibilities. The goal of the conference is to provide a faculty perspective on critical issues in higher education presented in a format accessible to the general public.
