Mon, 04/05/2010

What undermines academic freedom and intellectual inquiry in the University today and what can be done to defend them?  Professor Cary Nelson, president of the American Association of University Professors, talks with the Old Mole's Laurie Mercier about untenured faculty afraid for their jobs and neo-liberal demands that education serve the economy.   Nelson has laid out these concerns in a new book, No University is an Island.
