Faculty Letter in Support of Hamline University Instructor, January 3, 2023

Hamline University

Note: The below letter was sent to Hamline University President Fayneese Miller on January 5, 2023, and FIRE invites additional faculty to add their names to the list of signers. Titles are for identification purposes only. Faculty who are interested in joining this letter may email facultyoutreach@thefire.org.

To: President Fayneese Miller 

Cc: Associate Vice President for Inclusive Excellence David Everett, Dean Marcela Kostihová, and Board of Trustees

We are deeply concerned by reports that Hamline dismissed a faculty member for presenting pedagogically relevant artwork depicting the Prophet Muhammad during an art history class session on Islamic art.

The notable piece, which has been studied and shared extensively since the 14th century, enriches students’ understandings of Islamic history, the life of Prophet Muhammad, the nature of Qur’anic revelations, and the significance of religious iconography. 

Therefore, in presenting the image, the instructor was exercising academic freedom for one of its core intended purposes: to introduce students to “the best published expressions of the great historic types of doctrine upon the questions at issue,” and “to provide them access to those materials which they need if they are to think intelligently.

Moreover, the instructor, out of respect for some Muslim students’ religious convictions, stated in the syllabus that Islamic images would be presented, and that participation in the visual exercise and discussion would be optional. Before presenting a slide of the painting, the instructor also reportedly alerted the class.

After a student complained, the instructor emailed the student to apologize. But this was deemed insufficient. Associate Vice President for Inclusive Excellence David Everett sent an all-staff email describing the Islamic image and classroom exercise as “undeniably inconsiderate, disrespectful, and Islamophobic,” later declaring, “it was best that this faculty member was no longer part of the Hamline community.” 

The instructor reportedly received no due process. Everett never spoke with the instructor or allowed the instructor to explain the pedagogical purpose of the class activity before being dismissed from teaching scheduled courses in the spring. 

You and Everett also blatantly disregarded the instructor’s academic freedom when you wrote in an email that “respect for the observant Muslim students in that classroom should have superseded academic freedom” [emphasis added]. Yet your university clearly commits to academic freedom and “the examination of all ideas, some of which will potentially be unpopular and unsettling.” As FIRE has explained, “blanket bans on displaying pedagogically relevant material are not acceptable at a university that commits to academic freedom.”

Your egregious actions violate the rights of faculty to educate and of students to receive an education. If content has the potential to offend, will it be censored? The chilling effect of your actions is inevitable. 

FIRE explained in a previous, successful lawsuit that although an institution may generally decline to renew a contract for a good reason, a poor reason, or no reason at all, it cannot do so for retaliatory reasons, including retaliation for exercising free speech and academic freedom rights.

Thus, we join FIRE in calling on Hamline’s leadership to reverse course by immediately reinstating the instructor, with no further penalties.
