At Heterodox Academy, we believe that by weaving together the best ideas from a range of perspectives, we can improve the quality of learning, research, and engagement within our broader society. Whether you’re interested in engaging with a community of peers, publishing your work, or sharing resources that have worked well for you, we want to hear your point of view.
Join the Conversation
Member Spotlight Series
Our Member Spotlight Series events are small virtual gatherings that are opportunities for our members to lead conversational seminars about topics related to their research. HxA is proud to foster a space for these conversations to take place. Please note that views expressed at these events are those of the presenting member and not of HxA. Attendance is open to all, though only HxA members and affiliates are eligible to host. To see our past Member Spotlight Series topics, take a look at our past events.
Join an HxCommunity group
Through HxCommunities, scholars connect to discuss research and ideas, share strategies and resources, and collaborate. HxCommunities support and promote heterodoxy within particular fields of study, particular geographic regions, and other specific academic communities, by providing a space to address the challenges and opportunities unique to each group. HxA membership is not required to join any of the HxCommunity groups. However, all HxCommunity participants must complete a brief application and endorse the HxA member statement.
Submit to the blog
The heterodox: the hxa blog is a platform for academics, researchers, professors, and students to share the challenges they face within their academic communities through both analysis and actionable solutions. We aspire to have every reader walk away with a richer understanding of the challenges of the university environment, as well as practical tools and techniques for addressing them.
Contribute tools & resources
We have a compendium of initiatives, policies, programs, and other innovations that have been deployed in classrooms, on campuses, and in disciplines to support open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement. We want to hear practical strategies, tools, and resources that have worked for you, and that others can readily adapt and implement in their own institutions. These can range from entire courses to syllabi, reading lists, and research.
