Since academic freedom has generally been discussed in the abstract, it has not often been thought in comparative terms, nor by way of its relationship with literary expression. Panelists bring together not only some of the specific contexts in which academic freedom and literary expression have been repressed at several particular sites but also the ways in which this repression has been resisted by writers, scholars, and artists.
