FIRE’s Shibley to be on BBC World Service Radio at 1 p.m. Eastern

By August 31, 2009

FIRE Vice President Robert Shibley will be a guest on the BBC World Service program "World, Have Your Say" this afternoon from 12 p.m. Eastern. The topic for this edition of the worldwide call-in show is "Is it still too early to study the Danish cartoon row?", referring to the Yale University Press’ decision not to reprint the famous Danish cartoons of Mohammed in Brandeis Professor Jytte Klausen’s upcoming book discussing the effect of the cartoons. Robert has already written on this topic at Pajamas Media and right here at The Torch. Those in America can listen online at this link starting at 1 p.m. Eastern. Listeners in Europe can tune in to the BBC World Service at 1700 GMT, and those in Africa and Asia generally an hour later. Tune in and join the conversation, or follow along on the "World, Have Your Say" blog.

UPDATE: Professor Jytte Klausen, author of the book in question, will also be appearing on the program.
