Academic Freedom and Accountability

Alan [not Scott] asked me to do a little advertising for a Roundtable at Yeshiva University hosted by their Middle East Forum.

Dr. Ellen Schrecker
(Professor of History at YU)
and
Dr. Alexander Joffe
(Director of Campus Watch)
will discuss issues such as
Academic Freedom: Meaning and Application
the Controversy at Columbia University
the Role of "Watchdog" Groups


note:
i do not know who these people are
 i do not necessarily endorse or anti-endorse their views

Back at my college we used to say that the problem with "roundtable discussions" is that round tables only have one side. I guess we'll see how many sides this round table has. Not sure if I'll be able to make it, though (sorry Alan); I'm giving finals on Tuesday.

"will discuss issues such as" ....that may be the oddest line I've ever seen in an advertisement for a lecture...

the original ad on Alan's blog expressed it as Issues to be discussed include. Does that sound better?

As I noted on Mar's webhlogh, Alexander Joffe has a Ph.D. in Archaeology. Many, many thanks for promoting this.

Oh, and Drs. Schrecker and Joffe will most definitely not be echoes of each other. You may wish to Google Dr. Schrecker and Campus Watch. Of course, the only way to know for sure is to attend ;-)

Wow! YU has a commie on faculty. I'm rather impressed, to be honest. Maybe they are a serious academic institution after all.

Okay, fixed. I didn't see notice any title indication when looking around.
The only problem now, then, would be how to do last-minute grading and writing of tests without them getting offended and throwing their multi-sided pointy table at me :-P .
