Academic Freedom. An international conference to be held in Montreal

Share this article

How can we protect academic freedom in an increasingly globalized world? Traditionally understood to be the right of individual faculty members to determine the trajectory of their research without interference, academic freedom is increasingly subject to a variety of interpretations.

The Office of the Provost of McGill University invites the community and the public to join the conversation in Redpath Hall on Friday, Sept. 28 from 12 to 6 p.m. The conference will include community discussions about whether and how McGill could create a statement of academic freedom in light of issues raised by speakers from McGill, Canada and abroad.
