Saint Xavier University Prof. Peter Kirstein to Speak at North Park University
Saint Xavier University (SXU) Department of History Professor Peter N. Kirstein will be speaking at an event at North Park University on the higher-education crisis. In particular, he will discuss the issues that threaten academic freedom and utilize historical examples from the McCarthy Era in the 1950s.
He will provide strategies of liberation to battle the trend of eliminating tenure, expanding proletarian contingent faculty and restricting critical thinking in the classroom. Kirstein’s presentation will be from 11 to noon on Saturday, June 18, 2016 on the campus of North Park.
