Khalid speaks frequently about free expression and academic freedom with her Carleton colleague, Associate Professor of Educational Studies Jeffrey Aaron Snyder. Over the past several years, Khalid and Snyder have delivered joint talks at many different colleges and universities. Here are some of the key topics they have addressed:   

  • Free Speech and Why It Matters  

  • Is Free Expression at Odds with Diversity and Inclusion? 

  • Intellectual Freedom, Viewpoint Diversity and the Liberal Arts

  • Academic Freedom: What Is It? Who Has It? And Why Should We Care? 

Khalid and Snyder enjoy visiting different campuses to engage with students, faculty, administrators and staff. For speaking requests and inquiries, please email Khalid at

These threats--including book bans, anti-CRT laws and campus speech codes--come from across the political spectrum. Khalid and Snyder are particularly interested in the relationship between intellectual freedom and social justice. See, for example, their work on:
