How Political Correctness Limits the Free Exchange of Ideas on Campus (THE SAAD TRUTH_129)

I cover the language police, the rejection of intellectual diversity, identity politics, micro-aggressions, trigger warnings, safe spaces, cultural appropriation, among other topics.

This is a recording of an invited lecture organized by the Institute for Liberal Studies and hosted at the University of Ottawa.

Notes:
1) Typos and other possible errors in the transcription of questions and comments in the Q&A portion of the clip do not originate from me!

2) The original Q&A period contained a greater number of questions and audience statements but the clip’s editor made the editorial decision of which to keep and which to delete.

3) The original clip was of a much higher resolution but I had to transform it to ensure a quicker upload on YouTube.

4) At two points in my lecture (toward the end), I refer to a formatting error with the numbering of items (on the particular slides). However, you’ll note that the numbering on the slides in question is shown correctly in the clip. This is because I was reading off my Powerpoint slides during the lecture (which yielded formatting errors between my Mac and the computer in the lecture hall) however the slides shown in the clip stem from the pdf versions of the original slides (i.e., no formatting errors).
