The Future of Academic Freedom by Henry Reichman+

The Future of Academic Freedom by Henry Reichman, Joan Wallach Scott
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 836 KB
Overview: Academic freedom-crucial to the health of American higher education-is threatened on many fronts. In The Future of Academic Freedom, a leading scholar equips us to defend academic freedom by illuminating its meaning, the challenges it faces, and its relation to freedom of expression.

In the wake of the 2016 election, challenges to academic freedom have intensified, higher education has become a target of attacks by conservatives, and issues of free speech on campus have grown increasingly controversial. In this book, Henry Reichman cuts through much of the rhetoric to issue a clarion call on behalf of academic freedom as it has been defined and defended by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) for over a hundred years. Along the way, he makes it clear that this is the issue of our day.

Stylish Academic Writing by Helen Sword (.M4B)

Stylish Academic Writing by Helen Sword
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 180 MB
Overview: Elegant data and ideas deserve elegant expression, argues Helen Sword in this lively guide to academic writing. For scholars frustrated with disciplinary conventions, and for specialists who want to write for a larger audience but are unsure where to begin, here are imaginative, practical, witty pointers that show how to make articles and books a pleasure to read – and to write.
Dispelling the myth that you cannot get published without writing wordy, impersonal prose, Sword shows how much journal editors and readers welcome work that avoids excessive jargon and abstraction. Sword’s analysis of more than a thousand peer-reviewed articles across a wide range of fields documents a startling gap between how academics typically describe good writing and the turgid prose they regularly produce.

Stylish Academic Writing showcases a range of scholars from the sciences, humanities, and social sciences who write with vividness and panache. Individual chapters take up specific elements of style, such as titles and headings, chapter openings, and structure, and close with examples of transferable techniques that any writer can master.
Genre: Audiobooks > Non-Fiction

Academic Freedom by Jennifer Lackey

Academic Freedom by Jennifer Lackey
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.5 MB
Overview: Academic freedom allows members of institutions of higher learning to engage in intellectual pursuits without fear of censorship or retaliation, and lies at the heart of the mission of the university. Recent years have seen growing concerns about threats to academic freedom, many brought about from the changing norms of (and demands on) the university. A wide range of new issues – including content warnings, safe spaces, social media controversies, microaggressions,
and no platforming – have given rise to loud cries, in both scholarly and popular contexts, that academic freedom is under serious attack. This volume fills both of these gaps in the current literature by bringing together leading philosophers from a wide range of areas of expertise to weigh in on
both traditional issues and timely challenges that involve academic freedom. Divided into four main sections, it covers the rationale of academic freedom, its parameters, the new challenges to academic freedom (ranging from content warnings to political correctness), and the conflicts between academic freedom and the enforcement of laws and regulations governing the university.
Genre: Non-Fiction > Educational > Politics & Social Sciences

Writings on Academic and Political Vocations by Max Weber +

Max Weber’s Complete Writings on Academic and Political Vocations by Max Weber, edited by John Dreijmanis, translated by Gordon C. Wells
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.4MB
Overview: Max Weber’s Complete Writings on Academic and Political Vocations
This is the first edition in any language of all of Weber’s writings on academic and political vocations.

Weber made many significant interpretations of both academic and political vocations in his two lectures on "Science as a Vocation" (Wissenschaft als Beruf, 1917) and "Politics as a Vocation" ( Politik als Beruf, 1919), as well as in a series of newspaper articles written between 1908 and 1920. Since these writings are of more than historical interest, there was a need to bring them all together in a single volume. Newly translated and annotated, this collection comprises both lectures plus 32 articles which Weber wrote on academia. Most of these have not been translated before.

In the introduction, Prof. Dreijmanis relates the academic and political vocations to each other conceptually, showing that there is considerable overlap and some convergence: the need for passion, an "inward calling," as well as career insecurity in both vocations.
