  • Wednesday February 10, KIVA, 7:00 p.m. -9:00 p.m.
    Omar Shakir, Bertha Fellow at the Center for Constitutional Rights
    Megan Marzec, graduate of Ohio University
  • What is the greatest threat to free speech at U.S. universities today? Who is trying to block students from organizing around Palestine on American campuses? How are they doing this? Can professors have their academic freedom stripped if they research Palestine? Do people choose silence about Palestinian rights because they fear they may be accused of anti-Semitism?
