Free Speech in the West

Gratitude and the Future of Discovery at UNC

Event Overview

It is no secret that free speech on college campuses is under attack. Students and professors alike experience pressure to either avoid or hyperfocus on controversial topics with limited room for honest and rigorous debate. What does this tell us about the future of Western civilization? Is the university no longer a marketplace of ideas, questions, argument, and discovery? Are the more difficult topics only an opportunity for complaint, or do we have something to be grateful for from our inheritance? Where do we go from here? 

Join bestselling author, “Uncanceled History” podcast host, and associate editor of The Spectator, Douglas Murray, and UNC Alumni Free Speech Alliance to discuss this and more with UNC Chapel Hill students on February 23, 2023, from 5:30 P.M. – 6:30 P.M.

This event is open to the community. For information about the private reception or sponsorship opportunities, please reach out to Dr. Christine Emery at christine@commonsensesociety.org.
