Testing the Limits of Academic Freedom: Controversial Art on College Campuses
Pickus, Keith H.
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n2 p66-76 2007
In recent months, the principle of academic freedom has made headlines. From legislative attempts to exercise control of campus activities to the passionate response to Ward Churchill's comments about victims of 9-11, efforts to limit the free exchange of ideas appear with increasing regularity. This article reviews the confrontation between controversial art and academic freedom on the campuses of Wichita State, Washburn, and Indiana Universities within the past three years.
