Pink Bunny of Battle: “The War on Academic Freedom.”
In case you haven’t noticed, we’re at war. I’m not referring to the war on terrorism. I’m referring to the no-holds-barred, scorched-earth war that extremist right-wing Republicans are waging to transform every aspect of our society so that it conforms to their ideology. In higher education, they’ve got academic freedom in their sights. And they’ve just about killed it. Read on, and you’ll see what I mean.
This is relevant to my (still largely embryonic) “How an English Department Works” category.
