University of Illinois Professor Cary Nelson—author of No University is an Island: Saving Academic Freedom, Manifesto of a Tenured Radical, and Dreams Deferred: A Concise Guide to the Middle East Conflict and the Movement to Boycott Israel—will speak on the topic, "Academic Freedom in Times of Crisis: The Future of Collective Bargaining, Free Speech on Campus, and Prospects for Peace in the Middle East," in the evening on April 19, at 7:00pm, in Reynold's Recital Hall.
All are welcome and invited to attend, free of charge. Dr. Nelson's formal talk will be followed by a question and answer period, and a reception. Light refreshments will be served.
The event is the second in a series of forums this year on the overarching topic, "Reclaiming Academic Freedom and Free Speech on Campus," presented by the Center for Academic and Intellectual Freedom in cooperation with College Democrats, College Republicans, and Young Americans for Liberty. The series is committed to viewpoint diversity, pluralism and ecumenism, in a time of competing fundamentalisms, polarization and division in our country and around the world.
