"Whose freedom? Which autonomy?" by Sharon Rider; CHEF Talk, Danmarks institut for Pædagogik og Uddannnelse

Mee, R. (Participant)

Activity: Attending an eventConference organisation or participation

Description

In this lecture, Sharon Rider, Professor of Philosophy, Uppsala University, Sweden, will discuss
1. how the issues involved in questions concerning academic freedom have somewhat different anatomies, depending upon which systems, subjects or organizations are involved (students and teachers, the university and the state, the university and the faculty, etc); and
2. whether the freedom involved is understood primarily in political, economic, or conceptual terms.
The autonomy of one party, actor or agent in one sense can mean drastic incursions on the autonomy of another in a different one. Therefore, to the extent that academic freedom is under attack, the question of what is being threatened and by whom will have somewhat different answers in different contexts.
