Timothy Garton Ash – “Who’s Afraid of Free Speech?” at The British Academy

The British Academy

January 17, 2018

18:30 - 20:00

This event is part of the British Academy’s season on Identities & Belonging

What should we be free to express about ourselves, other people, their religions, sexual orientations or views? Is Facebook a force for good or evil? How can we control such a private superpower anyway? Drawing on his latest book Free Speech: Ten Principles for a Connected World, leading political writer, and winner of the British Academy’s 2017 Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding, Timothy Garton Ash will consider the challenges and opportunities for free speech in our time.
