FIRE President Greg Lukianoff Speaking at Penn Tomorrow
April 1, 2013
by Nico Perrino
FIRE President Greg Lukianoff will visit the University of Pennsylvania tomorrow to discuss his book, Unlearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate. The speech will take place at the University of Pennsylvania Bookstore and will begin at 12:30 p.m.
In examining the themes of Unlearning Liberty, Greg will reveal how intolerance for dissent and debate on America's college campuses threatens the freedom of every citizen—and makes us all just a little bit dumber. His discussion of free speech on college campuses and in the larger society will also touch upon local controversies, including the revocation of an invitation to Narendra Modi to keynote the annual Wharton India Economic Forum at Penn, as well as the recent flap involving Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Philadelphia magazine.
The event is sponsored by the Penn Center for Constitutionalism and co-sponsored by the Penn Bookstore and Penn's International Relations Program.
Greg's University of Pennsylvania SpeechWhen: Tuesday, April 2 at 12:30 p.m.
Where: University of Pennsylvania Bookstore, 3601 Walnut Street
Who: Sponsored by the Penn Center for Constitutionalism, Penn's International Relations Program, and the Penn Bookstore
