Global Observatory on Academic Freedom
Call for Essays: Reimagining Academic FreedomThe OSUN Global Observatory on Academic Freedom (GOAF) welcomes all undergraduate and graduate students attending an OSUN institution to submit their essays for a competition on the topic of “Reimagining Academic Freedom."
GOAF conducts rigorous, innovative and pertinent scientific research responding to the urgent need of rethinking the concept of academic freedom, a concept whose crisis we are witnessing throughout the world. New times pose new challenges, theoretical as much as empirical, and GOAF seeks to stimulate the debate, connect the interested stakeholders, and reflect upon possible pathways vital to the preservation of academic freedom and democratic societies.
GOAF wants to provide an opportunity for students to engage in this endeavor by contributing to the reflection on the global reconceptualization of academic freedom, from a diverse set of disciplinary approaches, regional outlooks, and epistemological understandings. We especially welcome interdisciplinary work and innovative theoretical contributions.
Essays should be up to 4,000 words in English language and no previously published works will be accepted. Submitted essays will undergo double blind evaluation, based on the originality, clarity, and argumentation of the essays, by the respected members of GOAF's Advisory Board and Postdoctoral Fellows. Winning essays will be published on GOAF’s webpage and the first winning essay will be published in GOAF’s Annual Report on Academic Freedom for 2022. The three winners will be invited to join GOAF’s OSUN Research Network on Academic Freedom and actively participate in all future GOAF’s events.
Submit essays and any questions to [email protected]
Deadline to submit essays is June 1
