Danish Cartoon Panel Discussion at UofC
Here are the details for the upcoming talk in Chicago about the Danish Cartoons.
The University of Chicago Objectivist Club is pleased to announce a
panel discussion in defense of the freedom of speech. Danish cartoons
depicting Muhammad have sparked a worldwide controversy. Death
threats and violent protests have sent the cartoonists into hiding and
have had the intended effect of stifling freedom of expression. The
reaction to these cartoons raises urgent questions whose significance
goes far beyond a set of drawings.
Come ask your questions about freedom of speech, the Danish cartoons,
and the issues they have raised at a panel discussion. The cartoons
will be prominently displayed throughout the event.
When: Tuesday, April 25th, 7pm. Doors open at 6:30
Where: Kent Chemical Laboratory, Room 107, on the University of
Chicago campus. The Kent Chemical Laboratory is at 1020 East 58th
Street; Chicago, IL. For maps of campus and the surrounding area, see
