This talk will focus on the issue of free speech on college campuses. Linus Owens brings first-hand experience of the challenges faced by Middlebury College during the March 2017 visit by author Charles Murray, which was disrupted by hundreds of student protesters.
As an Associate Professor of Sociology at Middlebury College, Owens thinks about movements, places, and the conflicts that bring them together and push them apart. In past work, he has brought these interests together in exploring how anarchists organize online and the place-making and storytelling practices of squatters in Amsterdam.
This event will be held in the Brooks M. O'Brien Auditorium at Landmark College.
