Video: The New Censorship in American Higher Ed

Insights from Portland State

National Association of Scholars

A new wave of censorship has arisen in the United States propelled by the January 2021 Capitol Riot and building upon “anti-racism” activism that arose in the Summer of 2020. In higher education, this has taken the form of new policies to limit criticism of various critical and Woke studies programs, as well as efforts to curtail academic freedom for faculty, teaching, and research deemed “racist.”

On May 6th at 1 pm ET, NAS hosted board member and Oregon chapter head Dr. Bruce Gilley, Portland State University colleague Dr. Peter Boghossian, and Oregon Senator Dennis Linthicum to discuss a new Oregon Association of Scholars report and accompanying video entitled "The New Censorship in American Higher Education: Insights from Portland State University."
