Edward J. Carvalho and David B. Downing of the English Department were interviewed on January 6, 2011, by InsideHigherEd about their recent book, Academic Freedom in the Post-9/11 Era. 

This book (published by Palgrave/Macmillan in December 2010) was the subject of Stanley Fish’s essay, “We’re All Conservatives Now,” which appeared in the New York Times online “Opionator” section on December 20, 2010.

In the InsideHigherEd interview, Carvalho and Downing addressed Fish’s piece, the book itself, and more general issues about the role of the American Association of University Professors, the current economic crisis with respect to academic freedom, and the outlook for higher education under the Obama administration.
