Crises on Campus? Exposing Simplistic Narratives Around Politics and Speech in Higher Education
Please join us on September 22 for the latest workshop in our "Fellows in the Field" series, "Crises on Campus? Exposing Simplistic Narratives Around Politics and Speech in Higher Education," featuring 2020-2021 Center fellows Elizabeth Niehaus, Associate Professor at the University of Nebraska, and Nick Havey, doctoral candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles. Elizabeth spent the past year exploring how students make decisions about when, whether, and how to speak up in class about controversial issues, problematizing the idea of the self-censorship crisis on campus. Nick spent the past year using digital trace data to explore how students identify politically in the interest of assessing whether there is a particular political skew on the nation's campuses. Both of these projects help us understand how current narratives about politics and speech on campus, often based on limited self-report survey data flatten conversation and emphasize the extremes, rather than identify concrete problems and solutions.
