Max Forte's List: Academic Freedom & Free Speech for Academics

    • Commentary: Emory students doth protest too much

       

      College isn’t supposed to protect you from unpleasant ideas—like President Trump

       

       Evan Mah

    • On Monday, approximately 40 students at Emory University drew up signs that read “Stop Trump” and “Stop Hate.” They gathered at the foot of the administration building, chanting phrases like “You are not listening!” and “We are in pain!” They demanded a meeting with President James Wagner. According to the Emory Wheel, the campus paper, they walked into the administration building shouting, “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other.” They even yelled, “We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

       

      Freedom? Chains? One would have thought that Emory had made Donald Trump the next chair of its center of ethics. Or had just invited Trump to be commencement speaker (after all, they did have Ben Carson wax poetic in 2012). If only the spark were so sensible. Rather, the protests came about merely because someone had written the words “Trump 2016” and “Accept the Inevitable: Trump 2016” in chalk on sidewalks around campus.

    • Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

       
       
      By -
    • Dear Emory Community,

       

      Over the past few days, we have been confronted with controversy, fear and demand for change surrounding the chalking of “Trump 2016” and other phrases in support of the Republican presidential nomination frontrunner. The Wheel’s Editorial Board discussed extensively the position that the paper would like to take and, as our hour of print approaches, we have realized that the discontent on campus requires more nuance and cannot be addressed as hastily as our editorial process would have required.

       

      The Editorial Board agreed that Donald Trump is an offensive man. Publicly, he has made racist, sexist and xenophobic statements. For many students, their concern is more palpable than mine – it is a concern not merely of what will become of the country should Trump be elected, but one of what will become of their own lives. Trump has changed the game, so to speak. I was proud to be an Emory student when I saw students protesting on the Quad and voicing their concerns regarding their mental and physical safety on campus.

    • Emory Students Express Discontent With Administrative Response to Trump Chalkings

       
       
    • UPDATE (3/22 at 9:49 p.m.) Scroll down for the original article:

       

      The following day, University President James W. Wagner, as well as representatives from College Council (CC) and Student Government Association (SGA) sent emails to the Emory community to address student concerns and responses. In his University-wide email, Wagner wrote that he intends to implement “immediate refinements to certain policy and procedural deficiencies, regular and structured opportunities for difficult dialogues, a formal process to institutionalize identification, review and [the] addressing of social justice opportunities and issues and a commitment to an annual retreat to renew our efforts.” Wagner added in his email that the previous day’s chalkings represented “values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.”

      • Emory President: Students Scared by 'Trump 2016' Chalk Signs

        ATLANTA — Mar 23, 2016
    • A flurry of chalk scrawls supporting Donald Trump on the Emory University campus sparked a demonstration by students who demanded and were granted a meeting with the president, saying the messages made them feel concerned and frightened. At least one of them said he got death threats after the protest.

       

       The students viewed the messages as intimidation, and they voiced "genuine concern and pain" as a result, Emory President Jim Wagner wrote Tuesday, one day after meeting with 40 to 50 student demonstrators.

       

       The Atlanta university on Wednesday provided The Associated Press with a copy of Wagner's letter, in which he said students confronted by Trump's name in chalk "heard a message about values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory's own."

      Students at Emory University protested on Monday after finding support messages for Donald Trump written around the Atlanta campus in chalk, according to The Washington Post

      Charging that the drawings, which said things like "Trump for Pres" and "Vote For Trump," left them feeling attacked, students demanded the university's administration take action, reported the student newspaper, The Emory Wheel

      The Wheel says that 40 students gathered in an outdoor space on campus holding signs that included messages like "Stop Trump," and chanted to the administration, "You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!"

      Some Emory University students "in pain" after "Trump 2016" chalked on campus

    • The specter of a Donald Trump presidency is so disturbing to some college students that they're protesting pro-Trump chalk writings on their campus, according to a report by Emory University's campus newspaper.

      The words "Trump 2016" appeared earlier this week scrawled in chalk around the college campus, the Emory Wheel reported Monday. In response, a few dozen students gathered at the school's administration building later that day, holding signs that read "Stop Trump" and "Stop Hate." According to the paper, the activists shouted, "You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!"

      Tuesday evening's hullabaloo centered around an incident at Georgia's Emory University, in which someone wrote "Trump 2016" in chalk all over the college campus. The ensuing panic among students became the subject of ridicule by everyone from Gawker ("these kids are extreme weenie babies") to New York ("College can be a stressful period").

      Oberlin releases statements that seem to contradict its earlier position defending the right of a controversial professor, Joy Karega, to say what she wants on social media.

      Despite criticism that it was being soft on anti-Semitism, Oberlin College doubled down last month on its position that a professor’s remarks on social media were protected speech. Now the college appears to be backtracking in a set of statements released over the weekend.

    • Concordia’s CFO Gets $235,000 Severance After 3 Months in Office

         

      Sonia Trudel’s Departure Was a “Mutual Agreement”

         
    • Concordia gave $235,000 to now-departed executive Sonia Trudel, less than three months after she took up the university’s Chief Financial Officer position.

                        

      The severance package is stipulated in Trudel’s contract as being a year’s salary, according to documents obtained by The Link in an access to information request. She will receive the $235,000 as a salary continuance.

        

      Trudel was also given the right to insurance, benefits and access to an “annual professional development or scholarly research allowance” of $5,000, according to her termination letter. She had access to these benefits for 60 days after she was fired.

        

      Concordia is also offering “transition assistance” for four months.

    • The Coddling of the American Mind

    • The Real Reason We Need to Stop Trying to Protect Everyone’s Feelings

    • Like every kid, I was forced to read Fahrenheit 451 in high school.

       

      If you’d asked me what it was about before last week, I would have told you: “Firemen who burn books.”

       

      And if you’d asked me why on earth they did that, I would have answered just as confidently: “Because a tyrannical government wanted them to.”

       

      There is a trend afoot to conveniently remember the works of authors like Ray Bradbury and Aldous Huxley as warnings against distant totalitarianism and control. But this only scratches the surface of what these books are about.

    • Wheaton Moves to Fire Hijab-Wearing Professor

    • What started as a gesture of interreligious solidarity may be ending with the dismissal of a tenured professor.

        

      Wheaton College in Illinois, a leading Christian college, announced Tuesday that it is moving to fire Larycia Hawkins, a tenured faculty member in political science, over her statements about wearing a hijab during Advent to show solidarity with Muslims at a time when some politicians were using anti-Muslim rhetoric. The college has said that the act of wearing the hijab was not the issue. Rather it was a statement by Hawkins that Muslims "worship the same God" as do Christians. Theologians are divided on that point, and many supporters of Wheaton disagree with her statement.

        

      Hawkins was placed on leave late last year, and the college said it reached an impasse with Hawkins after Wheaton requested clarification of her views. She has denied saying or doing anything that is inconsistent with Wheaton's commitment to Christian thinking.

        

      In Wheaton's announcement Tuesday, the college stressed that it had not fired Hawkins but started the process to do so -- a process involving a faculty committee review.

        

      In a December statement, Wheaton rejected the idea that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
