To Be or Not to Be…Politically Correct: Greg Lukianoff Speaking Tonight at Temple University on “Unlearning Liberty

By April 14, 2010

Tonight, Temple University student group Temple University Purpose will host FIRE President Greg Lukianoff for a lecture discussing how students are "Unlearning Liberty" when they witness administrators censoring their fellow students. From these acts of censorship, students learn that they should follow administrators’ example to seek punishment for protected expression. Greg’s "Unlearning Liberty" series has been presented at universities across the country and is the subject of his forthcoming book. The speech is especially pertinent as Temple recently charged Temple University Purpose an unconstitutional security fee for hosting controversial speaker Geert Wilders and has refused to clarify publicly that unpopular speech will not be silenced or burdened in the future.

The lecture will take place in Temple University’s Student Center Room 200C, at 1755 North 13th Street in Philadelphia, PA at 7:30 p.m. A Q&A session will follow. For more information, please visit the event’s Facebook page.
