The names of several hundred U.S. professors are currently cataloged on the Professor Watchlist, a site created by the right-wing organization Turning Point USA.

The site says its mission is “to expose and document college professors who discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”

Chicago artist, writer and curator Ruslana Lichtzier decided to organize the exhibition The Dangerous Professors, as a response to the watchlist.

Lichtzier joins global citizen Nari Safavi for Friday’s Weekend Passport, where we’ll also chat about a few more global picks you don’t want to miss this weekend.
