Our final video entry this week is the provocative Annual Conference program co-sponsored by the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee and the Association of American Publishers, “Blasphemy! When Religious Values Clash with Intellectual Freedom Values.” We were honored to host Paul Sturges and Irshad Manji as our distinguished speakers and hope you will enjoy their lively presentations (with apologies for a variety of technological issues, eventually resolved through some audience participation!). The video is now available online here.
The program took place on June 28 and addresses difficult questions of how we should balance intellectual freedom principles with cultural and religious differences. For more information on the panel, visit our previous blog post here.
