(In)Civility in Academic Spaces


(In)Civility in Academic Spaces
Facilitator: Adeline Koh, PhD

The topic of (in)civility in public academic spaces has become extremely important, particularly in the wake of the Steven Salaita case, in which Salaita was denied a job he had been hired before because of his anti-Israeli foreign policy tweets. How should junior academics plan to walk the difficult tightrope between participating ethically in public social media spaces, and simultaneous passing through the difficult challenges of the tenure track? In this webinar, Koh will analyze the landscape of public academic spaces through social media, the necessity of participating in these spaces, and caveats and strategies to keep in mind.
