Colloquium: Freedom and Decency

Colloquium: Freedom and Decency
December 4, 2009

Everyone is invited to join us on selected Friday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. in Crabbe Library Room 201 for a hour of informal, moderated discussion over articles of various topics selected by EKU faculty. Refreshments will be provided by EKU Student Government Association.

Dr. Greg Engstrom will moderate this week’s discussion of Freedom and Decency:

It is one thing to lament the discourtesy of those who delight in giving offense, but another thing altogether to provide an effective remedy for it; and only when we honestly ask ourselves what remedy we are willing to contemplate will it become clear whether as a people we are truly engaged in a ‘culture war’ (as we are often told we are) or are simply witnessing the effects of a genuine but transient tension between more refractory and more energetic elements within a single cultural process.
