Open Inquiry in a Global Context: Announcing Our Next Theme

Although we often focus our content and programming on educational issues within the United States, HxA’s membership represents countries from around the world. Thus, we are excited to announce the topic of our May programs and blog entries: Open Inquiry in a Global Context. What unique challenges do scholars and students face globally when asking questions and pursuing bold inquiries? What risks do they take on? And what can the international context teach US colleges and universities about their struggles and current trajectory?

Theme Programming

In a few weeks we’ll chat with Maya Wang of Human Rights Watch about Dangerous Ideas: China and the Risks of Scholarship, a hard look into the intellectual climate in China and its effects on US campuses. We also look forward to a Member Spotlight led by our HxCanada community and a variety of essays shedding light on expression and intellectual climates outside the United States.
