Due to the Covid-19 situation, the 4th annual Philosophy and Theory of Higher Education Conference that was planned to take place in Uppsala on October 19–20, 2020, was postponed. The new date is set for June 7-9, 2022. In the interim, the organizers have offered a series of two-day webinars twice a year. You are cordially invited to the next webinars on October 11–12, 2021.
The event is organized by The Philosophy and Theory of Higher Education Society, PaTHES, and Uppsala University’s Center for Higher Education and Research as Objects of Study, HERO.
Webinar 1 will touch on the main themes of the conference in light of a comparative international analysis of the state of academic freedom.

|Professor Wesley Shumar, Department of Communication, Drexel University, USA|
|Professor Susan Wright, Department of Educational Anthropology, Aarhus University, Denmark|
Webinar 1 will be chaired by Professor Sharon Rider, Department of Philosophy, Uppsala University, Sweden.
Webinar 2 welcomes all junior scholars coming to the study of higher education, including postdocs and MA and PhD students, to share and discuss their research and project ideas.
For participation in the project workshop, please send a short outline (ca 500 words) describing your academic position, background (MA, PhD, postdoc, independent, etc.) and institutional affiliation (university, faculty, discipline) as well as your research topic, central themes, theories, core concepts and methods.
