Hey all – This is from last spring but this Twitter thread is absolutely compelling to me. Please take a look if you can. I think you all may encounter waves of book banning in your careers and it’s good to understand where this comes from.The Hyperlinked Library is all about participation and connections around ideas, knowledge and people. This example (and other recent book bans, etc) goes against everything this class is about.
@CoreyRobin I teach a class at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh on Banned Books. I’ve been teaching it every few years for 25 years. Here is what I have learned.
