Wadham Human Rights Forum: Free Speech After Paris

by | Feb 20, 2015

Wadham Human Rights Forum is delighted to announce Jo Glanville and Giles Fraser as the speakers at its next event. Jo is the director of English PEN, and appears regularly in the media as a commentator on culture and freedom of expression, including the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph and the London Review of Books. Giles is a former chaplain and lecturer at Wadham College, and writes the column Loose Canon for the Guardian.  Together they will assess the recent history that has shaped attitudes towards blasphemy and offence, considering the threats, limits and contradictions facing freedom of expression.
