Journal of Academic Freedom Issues Call for Papers on Global Partnerships

The AAUP Journal of Academic Freedom publishes scholarship on academic freedom and on its relation to shared governance, tenure, and collective bargaining. Published online annually, the Journal provides a central place across disciplines to track the developing international discussion about academic freedom and its collateral issues. 

JAF editor Jennifer H. Ruth of Portland State University has written on issues of academic freedom in both the United States and China. She issued a call for papers that reflects her interest in and concern about the increasing number of global partnerships American universities have established in recent years. The abundance of partnerships as well as branch campuses and programs in non-democratic countries creates unique challenges for American faculty working abroad. The call for papers introduces a number of potential "questions to explore" that encourage scholars to place traditional notions of academic freedom and governance in a broader historical and international context.

Any essay that helps us develop a better understanding of academic freedom in today’s circumstances, whether it touches on issues of globalism or not, is welcome. Electronic submissions should go to [email protected] by January 30, 2016 and must include an abstract of about 150 words. For additional details, please read the call for papers
