Denis Rancourt 2009 talk at NYU academic freedom conference -- video

Below is a three-part video of Denis Rancourt's "Science, Technology, and Academic Freedom Panel" presentation at the Frederic Ewen Academic Freedom Center 2nd Annual Conference, New York University, April 3, 2009.

This talk was delivered two days after Denis Rancourt was wrongfully fired from his tenured Full Professorship in physics at the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada, in what is regarded as a major academic freedom case.

A chronology of the conflict between Rancourt and the institution's management is HERE.

These videos present a full story, with description of the teaching method, in 24 minutes.
