CFE Virtual Forum Series: Has our fear of offending gone too far?
May 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Canadian journalist Lydia Perović argues that “the quality and quantity of punishments for expressed opinions or aesthetic choices are different than just a handful of years ago” and asks if we are moving to a future in which hate speech is seen in every disagreement and the autonomy of science and art are abandoned. How has the treatment of conflicting views changed in recent years? What does it mean for democratic discussion and practice? Join our panelists in exploring the challenges to free expression in the quest for equity and social justice.
