New Episodes of AAUP Presents Out Now

Our podcast AAUP Presents is back with two new episodes, featuring interviews with authors of recent articles in the Journal of Academic Freedom and Academe.

In the first episode, I sit down with Lori Latrice Martin, a professor in the Department of African and African American Studies at Louisiana State University, to discuss what Professor Martin describes as the “predictability of efforts to silence conversations and actions related to combating anti-Blackness in America and the continued use of Black deaths to further the social, economic, and political progress of non-Black groups in the academy and beyond” in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd. Listen here.  

In the second new episode, I talk to Elizabeth Tandy Shermer, an associate professor of history at Loyola University Chicago, and Charlie Eaton, an associate professor of sociology at the University of California, Merced, about the past, present and future of the student debt crisis in the United States. It’s a fascinating history that has brought us to a pivotal moment where debt forgiveness and a path to a debt-free future seems possible, but remains fraught with political and social barriers.Here’s the episode (with links to listen on your preferred podcast platform).

Both are fascinating and thorny topics; give them a listen. You can find these episodes (and all previous ones) here on our website.

We’ll have more episodes for you in 2023.

Enjoy the holidays,
