It's almost impossible to do justice to the hard-hitting talk on freedom of speech and how it relates to academic freedom, delivered two weeks ago by Alan Charles Kors, professor of history at the University of Pennsylvania, as UCT's 42nd TB Davie Memorial Lecture. Illustrating his talk with often amusing examples from both American institutions and UCT - he'd trawled some revealing UCT handbooks - Kors highlighted the many obstacles to both ideals at universities in these societies. We've opted to simply whet readers' appetites with a few extracts from Kors' talk, and refer them to the entire lecture that will be placed on the UCT website. Enjoy.
