Scholars and teachers in higher ed today contend with a set of conditions, controversies, and conflicts over campus climate, free expression, academic freedom, and the nature and purpose of our work. Should we be as “objective” as possible or should we be devoted to political causes and activist goals? Are we subject matter experts and authorities in our classrooms, or should we be breaking down power inequalities and finding ways to establish solidarity with our students? This Learning Community will read and discuss a number of key articles and books related to these debates.
