28/03/2020

 Uploaded August 2018

University campuses throughout the West are in the grip of a troubling social phenomenon, now in danger of spreading beyond the ivy walls. Once bastions of intellectual rigour and freedom of thought, universities have become closed-minded and self-censoring, pandering to what appear from the outside to be ridiculously heightened sensitivities and undeserved entitlement.

Safe spaces, trigger warnings and counselling on demand have become commonplace. Teaching staff who speak out are being intimidated, silenced and vilified. Students who choose to think against the mainstream are harassed and ostracised. Has normal teenage angst been institutionally mollycoddled and even pathologised?

Join Dr Tiffany Jenkins author, Keeping their Marbles, Claire Lehmann Founder & Editor of Quillette, Professor Steven Schwartz AM Senior Fellow, The Centre for Independent Studies and Lindsay Shepherd Graduate, Wilfrid Laurier University, for a robust debate.
