Organized by Dr. Ummni Khan, the Joint Chair in Women's Studies (Carleton University and University of Ottawa), this one and a half day symposium aims to create open and respectful dialogue about the tensions -- real or perceived -- between academic freedom and anti-oppression principles. Using concrete examples when these two principles have clashed at Canadian universities, stakeholders with divergent viewpoints will discuss the incident, analyze the broader political implications, and develop strategies for how to better respond when such conflicts arise in the future.
