The University of Padua invites Arqus academics and students to the Conference “Libertas. Spaces and practices of academic freedom” that will be held from 22nd to 24th June in Padua.

To celebrate eight centuries of commitment to the protection and promotion of academic freedom and to revive such commitment, the University of Padua, in collaboration with Scholars at Risk Italy and Scholars at Risk Europe, organises this international conference to discuss Libertas. Spaces and practices of academic freedom.

The aim of this conference is to promote knowledge and understanding of processes that – across the centuries and still today – have put academic freedom as a specific form of freedom of expression at stake, and to expand the debate on themes related to academic freedom and its violations. The conference adopts a trans-disciplinary approach to academic freedom, informed by historical awareness and evidence of current threats, and it brings into dialogue voices from academia and other sectors as well as at-risk scholars. Furthermore, the conference considers the multi-level nature of commitment to academic freedom: local, national and European.
