Anonymous peer reviewers should not enjoy the power to overturn decision-making by press officials. Discussion of race, racism, and racial privilege must be included and protected in scholarly debate. Sometimes, academic gatekeepers confuse what is scholarly from what is political in an abusive effort to block academic discourse. Concerns over monetizing the academic book market should not predetermine a book’s content. When otherwise-hidden violations of academic freedom become part of a broad public discourse, retaliatory measures intimidate untenured faculty, scholars of color, and women academics who fear damage to their own careers should they speak out."</p> <p>View the entire article <a href="https://www.aaup.org/sites/default/files/Dollinger.pdf">"Forbidden Words: Academic Freedom, Censorship, and University Presses."</a></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p>Tags</p> <div class="tags-item"> <ul class="list-inline"> <li > <a href="/tags/tags/faculty-news" hreflang="en">Faculty in the News</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> Mon, 04 Oct 2021 18:35:30 +0000 Alexis Cabrera 50 at https://jewish.sfsu.edu Professor Gross to Teach Course for New Lehrhaus https://jewish.sfsu.edu/professor-gross-teach-course-new-lehrhaus <div class="row bs-1col node node--type-news node--view-mode-rss"> <div class="col-sm-12 bs-region bs-region--main"> <div class="field field--name-node-title field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item"><h1 class="news-title"> Professor Gross to Teach Course for New Lehrhaus </h1> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-sub-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--item"> <div class="pl-component pl-component--news-headline-topfold news-wrapper"> <div class="news-author">Author: J.
