COVID-19 and Academic Censorship

September 29, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT


What does censorship look like in a fully online world? Our experiences dealing with COVID-19 have increased – and in many ways complicated – interactions with open data, internet control, and e-book access. What have we learned about censorship in academia as a result? In this hour-long webinar, taking place during Banned Books Week, panelists Dr. Molly Roberts, Qinlan Shen, and Dr. Shannon M. Oltmann will address these questions and look at insights gained before and during the pandemic in conversation with Nabiha Syed.

Please note that only the first 1,000 guests will be able to attend the webinar. All registrants will receive a recording in the following weeks.
