  1. Aaron Swartz and the Assault on Open Information
    Malicious Government Prosecution

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    The great corporate-supported push to hide essential, publicly funded information behind private firewalls and government secrecy, represents a breathtaking breach of the basic tenets of democracy.
  2. The Academic Boycott Debate
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    An excellent summary and commentary on a debate at Ryerson University about whether Israel should be subjected to an academic boycott because of its human rights violations.
  3. Academic Freedom Threatened in Ontario Universities
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    While most academics would agree that a university should be a place where critical debate is fostered, what is academic freedom when the freedom to attend classes without being bombed isn't even assured? Academic freedom falters it seems when it comes to Palestine, whether in the Middle East or in North America. Not only is there no realizable academic freedom for Palestinians, but also, even in North America, students and faculty raising critical viewpoints about Israel find themselves muffled, accused of anti-Semitism, threatened with disciplinary action, or, in the case of former Depaul University professor, Norman Finkelstein, out of a job entirely.
  4. Connexions Library: Education, Children Focus 
    Resource Type: Website
    Selected articles, books, websites and other resources on education and children.
  5. The End of Academic Freedom in America: the Case of Steven Salaita
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    In the years I spent at Columbia University, there was always some professor or another coming under attack from the Israel lobby. But no matter the intensity of the witch-hunt, I was always proud to see my employer stand up for the free speech rights of the faculty.
  6. For Free Expression on Palestine
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
  7. Free Speech and Acceptable Truths
    Statement of the Alumni for Responsible Speech

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    While we support freedom of speech and academic freedom, we believe that university administrations have a duty to provide a safe learning environment in which students and faculty are protected by incorrect or harmful ideas. To achieve this safe learning environment, it will be necessary for the university authorities to cleanse the university's libraries of harmful books, to block inappropriate Internet sites, to ban guest lectures who hold improper views, and to identify and prosecute students and faculty who are guilty of thought crimes.
  8. 'Free speech' - as long as it doesn't offend anyone 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    On the issue of free speech most of the right and much of the left are in agreement, and so too are many liberals, activists, and human rights apparatchiks. They hold essentially the same position on freedom of expression - they are for it -in principle-, but only so long as it isn't used to express views that they find unacceptable or offensive. What they disagree about is merely who gets to decide what ideas are unacceptable, i.e., who gets to censor who.
  9. Free Speech in an Age of Identity Politics
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Transcript of Malik's TB Davie Memorial lecture on academic freedom at the University of Cape Town.
  10. The Israel Advocacy Push to 'Reclaim' York University
    Putting Current Events in Context

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    York is a longstanding hub for "Israel advocacy" organizations (as they designate themselves). This reality expresses itself in various ways. At the grassroots level, far-right Zionist organizing has been common at York since at least the early 1980s, and seems to have even included direct recruitment for armed settler movements in the West Bank (and more commonly for the Israeli military itself). At the level of university fundraising, York has thoroughly integrated some of Canada's leading Israel advocacy figures into its main administrative bodies. And at the level of university governance, York has earned a reputation for deep association with the Israeli state and for heavy-handed regulation of campus politics in favor of Israel advocates.
  11. NYU: Nerds on Strike!
    Against The Current vol. 120

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    On November 9, 2005, graduate student employees at New York University (NYU) put down their red pens and picked up their picket signs. After a 2004 ruling by a Bush- appointed majority of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the NYU administration seized the opportunity to refuse to recognize and renegotiate with the Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC)/ UAW Local 2110.
  12. Oil CEO Wanted University Quake Scientists Dismissed: Dean's E-Mail
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    The billionaire CEO of Continental Resources told a dean at the University of Oklahoma that he wanted earthquake researchers dismissed.
  13. Radical Digressions 4
    Resource Type: Website
    First Published: 2006   Published: 2008
  14. Review: Political War Over Palestine
    Against The Current vol. 131

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    It has become impossible to review titles like these, or discuss the issues they raise, without reference to the rise of an exceptionally vicious campaign against critical activist voices and academic scholarship on Palestine and Israel.
  15. The Salaita Affair
    Lessons Heard and Lessons Learned

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Professor Steven Salaita was to begin his new faculty appointment in Fall 2014 as a tenured Associate Professor in the American Indian Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). His appointment was vetted through the multi-layer levels that are a mainstay of North American universities faculty appointment process. However, on August 1, 2014, the chancellor of UIUC Phyllis Wise informed Salaita that he did not have a faculty job at UIUC. The storm this di-hiring created amongst North American academics was unprecedented.
  16. Science and liberation
    Science as human curiosity, as authority, and as business

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    The conservative movement’s attack on science has several prongs. Where they can attain government office, as in Canada, they use the highly effective tools of funding and de-funding, and regulation and de-regulation, to control government scientists and embolden private interests. The goal is to transfer power and resources from public services and public science to private institutions, while often appealing to moral and religious doctrines in the process.
  17. When Free Speech Becomes Dead Silence - The Israel Lobby And A Cowed Academia
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    The sudden cancellation of an academic conference on Israel, as well as the lack of outcry from 'mainstream' media, demonstrates once again the skewed limits to 'free speech' in 'advanced' Western democracies.
  18. Witch Hunt vs. Academic Freedom
    Against The Current vol. 116

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    I appear before you today because of a campaign of intimidation to which I have been subjected for over three years. While this campaign was started by certain members of the Columbia faculty, and by outside forces using some of my students as conduits, it soon expanded to include members of the Columbia administration, the rightwing tabloid press, the Israeli press, and more locally the Columbia Spectator. Much of this preceded the David Project film “Columbia Unbecoming,” and the ensuing controversy.
