The AAUP Journal of Academic Freedom is Online Now

Eight of the sixteen essays in Volume 6 of the Journal of Academic Freedom, edited by Michael Bérubé, discuss the case of Steven Salaita. Each of these essays considers a different aspect of the controversy that ensued when the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign rescinded Salaita’s appointment to a tenured faculty position due to his statements on Twitter. The other eight articles examine academic freedom issues relating to unionization, Catholic institutions, institutional review boards, Title IX requirements, personal ethics, and textbook controversy. You can read the Journal of Academic Freedom online or download .pdf files of individual articles at
