HxCommunity Groups

Through HxCommunities, scholars connect to discuss research and ideas, share strategies and resources, and collaborate. HxCommunities support and promote heterodoxy within particular fields of study, particular geographic regions, and other specific academic communities, by providing a space to address the challenges and opportunities unique to each group. HxA membership is not required to join any of the HxCommunity groups. However, all HxCommunity participants must complete a brief application and endorse the HxA member statement.

Adults

Our twice-monthly podcast, Half Hour of Heterodoxy, serves as a platform for researchers and academic insiders to share their work in fostering viewpoint diversity within their teaching, research, and communities. If your research or advocacy tightly connects with our mission, and especially if you have work you would like to discuss (typically a journal article or book), you can reach out to [email protected] with a bit about your research and interests. Please note that only a small number of scholars (20-25) are typically selected in a given year – but we are happy to consider proposals, and to build a roster of interested and interesting potential guests.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The heterodox: the hxa blog is a platform for academics, researchers, professors, and students to share the challenges they face within their academic communities through both analysis and actionable solutions. We aspire to have every reader walk away with a richer understanding of the challenges of the university environment, as well as practical tools and techniques for addressing them.
