FREE INQUIRY AT RISK: UNIVERSITIES IN DANGEROUS TIMES
A commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the University in Exile at The New School.

Rapid globalization, international collaborations, massification, corporate partnerships, increasing number of franchises, regime change, and other conditions of duress are reshaping universities around the world. What are the benefits and what are the risks to academic freedom and free inquiry as universities navigate these trends? This conference will look backward at the role of academic freedom and free inquiry in research universities and forward to what the future may have in store.
