Religion and Censorship
Date and TimeMonday, November 7, 2016
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
- Mary Idema Pew Library » Multipurpose Room
Should freedom of speech be curbed if it offends anyone, especially religious people? Or is protecting freedom of speech central to a healthy exchange of ideas and civil debate? Should sensitive subjects about religion and politics be discussed in public?
In this lecture and book-signing event, author and scholar Wendy Doniger will speak about her experiences of getting her book, The Hindus: An Alternative History, withdrawn from publication in India because it offended a group of right-wing Nationalists. She will speak on the challenges of discussing sensitive topics in the study of religion, especially Hinduism.
