"The Future of Academic Freedom"
A book event and signing by Henry Reichman

In the wake of the 2016 election, challenges to academic freedom have intensified, higher education has become a target of attacks by conservatives, and issues of free speech on campus have grown increasingly controversial. Over the course of ten audacious essays, Henry Reichman explores the theory, history, and contemporary practice of academic freedom. 

Henry Reichman is emeritus professor of history at California State University, East Bay, and chair of the AAUP's Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure. He is the author of Censorship and Selection: Issues and Answers for Schools.

Hopkins Club Lunch & Lecture: Troy Rondinone

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 12:30 PM

“Nightmare Factories: The Asylum in the American Imagination”
A book talk by Troy Rondinone

Madhouse, funny farm, psychiatric hospital, loony bin, nuthouse, mental institution: no matter what you call it, the asylum has a powerful hold on the American imagination. In fiction and film, they often symbolize mistreatment, fear, and imprisonment, standing as castles of despair and tyranny. Historian Troy Rondinone joins us to discuss his new JHU Press book, Nightmare Factories, the first history of mental hospitals in American popular culture--beginning with Edgar Allan Poe's 1845 short story "The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether" and including works ranging from Moby-Dick and Dracula to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Halloween, and American Horror Story. Asylums, he argues, darkly reflect cultural anxieties and the shortcomings of democracy, as well as the ongoing mistreatment of people suffering from mental illness. Don’t miss this fascinating discussion.

Reservations required. Cost: $24.00 plus surcharge and sales tax. Members contact the Hopkins Coub; non-members may attend as guests of JHU Press by contacting Jack Holmes at 410-516-6928 or jmh@press.jhu.edu
