Academic Freedom

Having encountered and studied intellectual freedom almost exclusively from a public library standpoint, it seems to me that there is a much more wide-spread awareness–on the part of everyone involved–of upholding intellectual freedom in public libraries than there is in academia.  And in the greater intellectual freedom discussion, it seems to me that academic issues are often overshadowed by the prominence that public forum, free speech, and unrestricted access to information lend to public library issues.  Whether or not this is the case, this book review/opinion piece by Stanley Fish gets at a lot of crucial points about the state of academic freedom, presently, and raises many questions and points that are worth considering.
