Questioning The Dogma Of Banned Books Week, Elliott Kuecker Dec 2018

Questioning The Dogma Of Banned Books Week, Elliott Kuecker

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This article examines the dogmatic celebration of Banned Books Week in libraries in the United States through Foucault's notion of the speaker's benefit and the repressive hypothesis. Given that the books featured during Banned Books Week are not legally banned, but actually widely available, it appears this celebration does more for the identity of the field of librarianship than it does to fight censorship.


We’Ve Come A Long Way (Baby)! Or Have We? Evolving Intellectual Freedom Issues In The Us And Florida, L. Bryan Cooper, A.D. Beman-Cavallaro May 2018

We’Ve Come A Long Way (Baby)! Or Have We? Evolving Intellectual Freedom Issues In The Us And Florida, L. Bryan Cooper, A.D. Beman-Cavallaro

Works of the FIU Libraries

This paper analyzes a shifting landscape of intellectual freedom (IF) in and outside Florida for children, adolescents, teens and adults. National ideals stand in tension with local and state developments, as new threats are visible in historical, legal, and technological context. Examples include doctrinal shifts, legislative bills, electronic surveillance and recent attempts to censor books, classroom texts, and reading lists.

Privacy rights for minors in Florida are increasingly unstable. New assertions of parental rights are part of a larger conservative animus. Proponents of IF can identify a lessening of ideals and standards that began after doctrinal fruition in the 1960s ...


Looking For A Cure For Educationl Exhaustion, Dave Powell May 2017

Looking For A Cure For Educationl Exhaustion, Dave Powell

Education Faculty Publications

Whoa, folks! An entire month got away from me there. Ever had that happen to you? If you're a teacher I'm guessing it probably has. I wish I could say that there was a good reason I hadn't written anything at all on this blog in the past few weeks, but the sad truth is that I haven't really been any busier than usual. Every semester becomes a slog at some point—that right there might be a topic for another post soon; maybe I could write two in a month!—but that hasn't stopped ...

The Sky Is Falling, But Not For The Reason You Think, Mark Y. Herring Apr 2016

The Sky Is Falling, But Not For The Reason You Think, Mark Y. Herring

Winthrop Faculty and Staff Publications

n case you missed it, the world is about to come to an end. I’m not a scryer or a doomsayer, nor am I especially prescient. But judging from the hysteria surrounding the Apple phone/FBI case, one can only conclude that the world is coming to an end, the sky is falling, civilization as we know it is coming to an end if Apple loses its gallant fight for the little millions who bought its phones.


Little Red Herrings:Charlie Hebdo And The Moral Equivalence Fallacy, Mark Y. Herring Mar 2015

Little Red Herrings:Charlie Hebdo And The Moral Equivalence Fallacy, Mark Y. Herring

Winthrop Faculty and Staff Publications

The tragedy of Charlie Hebdo in Paris kicked off what we hope is not a harbinger of 2015 things to come. The massacre by radical Muslims of some dozen employees of the satirical Paris magazine has set off a wave of newfound “freedom of expression” advocates. And so it should. While freedom of expression does not mean that one must accept what another says, it does vouchsafe the right to say it.

Fahrenheit 451 [9th Grade], Alice Rasmussen Jul 2008

Fahrenheit 451 [9th Grade], Alice Rasmussen

Understanding by Design: Complete Collection

This unit is designed for the beginning of the school year in an English I Pre-AP classroom. It assumes that students have completed their summer reading of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Overarching themes for the year are “Why do people read?” and “Why do people write?” Thus, students will begin to explore one of the reasons we read and write fiction: insight about human experience. More specifically related to the themes of Fahrenheit 451, students will see the importance of reading, writing, and enriching our brains as a species. By reading the novel, students will see an example of ...

Patron Objections To Library Materials: A Survey Of Christian College Libraries Part Ii, Craighton Hippenhammer Feb 1994

Patron Objections To Library Materials: A Survey Of Christian College Libraries Part Ii, Craighton Hippenhammer

Faculty Scholarship – Library Science

A survey of conservative Christian college libraries in the United States and Canada was taken early in 1993 to determine how their librarians handle patron objections to their collections. Surveyed were their policies and procedures, the nature of their support for the Library Bill of Rights, the nature of challenges (84 percent reported students were the objectors), selection of controversial materials, intellectual freedom definitions and level of librarian education. The survey is compared to four other surveys covering academic libraries, and/or public libraries. Included is a sample reconsideration policy and a sample reconsideration form. Having such a policy is ...


Untruth In The Classroom, John A. Drobnicki Jan 1994

Untruth In The Classroom, John A. Drobnicki

Publications and Research

Although historical revision is a valid practice, Holocaust revisionism is based on deliberate fabrications of the historical record and does not reinterpret a past event. The author believes that Holocaust revisionist materials should not be ignored by teachers, but should be used in classrooms as primary source material on anti-Semitism and intolerance.

Surveyed were their policies and procedures, the nature of their support for the Library Bill of Rights, the nature of challenges (84 percent reported students were the objectors), selection of controversial materials, intellectual freedom definitions and level of librarian education. Having a reconsideration policy is shown to be crucial for addressing censorship attempts.
