Event Should I Tweet That? Academic Freedom and Social Media

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

Social media gives us a platform to express ourselves on any subject to a wide audience. It also tests the traditional boundaries of speech protected by academic freedom. When faculty appointments can be revoked on the basis of 140 characters, are we witnessing new limits on academic freedom? Join our panel of experts for a lively discussion on what academic freedom means in the age of social media. This program is sponsored by the ACRL Professional Values Committee.
