This event was part of the Lannan In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series.

Cultural Freedom events feature philosophers, journalists, writers, scholars, and social justice activists discussing political, environmental, and human rights issues not normally covered by the mainstream media.  The format of these events is that of a talk on a specific subject for around 45 minutes, a brief intermission, then a conversation for 30 minutes.
