    How do we treat academic freedom and free speech in an international setting? Maria E. Montoya, associate professor of history at New York University and dean of arts and sciences at NYU Shanghai, discusses how to treat issues of academic freedom in a context where not everyone in the classroom shares the same cultural and political background. How do we negotiate these differences and create a classroom and university space that allows for expression of all kinds of thought and speech, even when those topics make others, both inside and outside the university, uncomfortable? How do we deal with the unease and tensions that are inherent in such a diverse cultural space?
