Hi Jessica thanks for writing. I’m starting to worry about similar issues as I start preparing to teach here in Australia next year. The line between wanting students to develop independent thought and rejecting repugnant or unvetted ideas is a fine indeed. You have my respect for teaching in the US under the current political environment. Some of the more stifling ideas from both the far left and right are beginning to creep into the higher education system in Australia.Having seen the regressive impact these ideas are having overseas, we need to reject them outright before they take root. Peace.
