He is the author of 13 books, most recently “Save the World On Your Own Time” and “The Fugitive in Flight,” a study of the 1960s TV drama. “How to Write a Sentence,” a celebration of sentence craft and sentence pleasure, will be out in January 2011."http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/03/anonymity-and-the-dark-side-of-the-internet/
August 2006: '"There should be no limits at all as to what subjects can be subjected to academic analysis," says Stanley Fish, a law professor at Florida International University in Miami. "But you should be performing as an academic and not as a partisan or preacher or moral judge."'http://www.csmonitor.com/2006/0818/p03s01-legn.html
June 2005: "prominent literary theorist, author, and Professor Stanley Fish will join the College of Law faculty.
The author of a dozen books and hundreds of articles in the areas of literature and law, Fish, 67, retired last year as dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a post he held since 1999.
Fish is best known for his work on interpretive communities, which looks at how the interpretation of a text by a reader depends on the reader's acceptance of a common set of foundational assumptions or texts. This work can be viewed as an explanation of how meaning is only possible in the context of a particular interpretive community. Fish also has written extensively on the politics of the university, commented on campus speech codes, and criticized political statements by university or faculty bodies on matters outside their professional areas of expertise."http://news.fiu.edu/releases/2005/06-29_stanleyfish.htm

QUOTE: What is remarkable about this volume is that the legal academics who make the arguments I have rehearsed are by and large strong free-speech advocates. Yet faced with the problems posed by the Internet, they start talking about “low value” speech (a concept strong first-amendment doctrine rejects) and saying things like “autonomy resides not in free choice per se but in choosing wisely” and “society needs not an absence of ‘chill,’ but an optimal level.”(In short, let’s figure out which forms of speech we should discourage.)
New York Times Aug 18, 2006 Teacher's radical 9/11 views raise red flags: A university lecturer casts doubt that terrorists plotted the attacks. Is that academic freedom?
QUOTE: the case raises questions about academic freedom: Are there limits to what can be taught, and if so, who decides them? Are certain views indicative of incompetence...or does such criticism lead to censorship?
