Talks/Lectures
"Why Free Speech is Fundamental" with Steven Pinker
Is free speech merely a symbolic talisman, like a national flag or motto? Is it just one of many values that we trade off against each other? Or is free speech fundamental — a right which, if not absolute, should be abrogated only in carefully circumscribed cases? Join Steven Pinker on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, for "Why Free Speech is Fundamental." Pinker argues that free speech is indeed fundamental, and that it’s important to remind ourselves why and to have the reasons at our fingertips when that right is called into question. In his Boston Globe opt-ed, Pinker discusses that "campus speech codes, disinvited commencement speakers, jailed performance artists, exiled leakers, a blogger condemned to a thousand lashes by one of our closest allies, and the massacre of French cartoonists have forced the democratic world to examine the roots of its commitment to free speech." This event is last in the 2017/2018 “Free Speech and Intellectual Diversity in Higher Education and American Society” series sponsored by the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership and co-sponsored by the Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law. A reception will follow.
