Tuesday, April 11, 2006 (7:30pm – 10:30pm); University of Southern California, Davidson Conference Center, Embassy Room

Confirmed Panelists: Dr. Yaron Brook, Ayn Rand Institute, Dr. Daniel Pipes, Middle East Forum.

The Danish cartoons depicting Mohammed have sparked a worldwide controversy. Death threats and violent protests have sent the cartoonists into hiding and have had the intended effect of stifling freedom of expression. The reaction to these cartoons raises urgent questions whose significance goes far beyond a set of drawings. What is freedom of speech? Does it include the right to offend? What is the significance of the worldwide Islamic reaction to the cartoons? How should Western governments have responded to this incident? How should the Western media have responded? These and related issues will be discussed by panelists from different backgrounds and perspectives. A questions-and-answers period with the audience will be included. Please note that the cartoons in question will be displayed at the event. Respect for the discussion forum will be strictly enforced. For more information, contact: USC Objectivist Club
