Tomorrow, Thursday, October 11, AHA President Barbara Weinstein will present a talk on “Academic Freedom in the Age of Homeland Security,” at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s sixth annual Carrol L. Pauley Lecture. Her lecture will be followed by a reply from Waskar Ari, who now teaches at UNL as an assistant professor in the history department. Ari had to fight for two years to gain a visa to teach in the U.S., and we devoted several blog entries following his cause and the AHA’s advocacy for him. His talk on Thursday “will provide insight to his own experiences of seeking admission to the U.S.,” reports News Net Nebraska, UNL’s College of Journalism & Mass Communications news service.
