Teaching French at Penn and Princeton

David French will be traveling to the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University next week, discussing “Free Speech Gives Us Civil Rights, Censorship Gives Us Tyranny and Violence — A Defense of the Marketplace of Ideas on Campus” — that oughta drive trigger-word-sensitive coeds to seek safe spaces. But if you think aggressions micro and macro are multicultural hooey, and if you are in the areas, then come and hear David’s talks, which are cosponsored by the National Review Institute’s On Campus program and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

On Tuesday, March 22, David will be at Princeton (McCosh Hall 2, 37 Washington Road) from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and the following day (yes, you would be correct if you said Wednesday, March 23) he will be at the University of Pennsylvania (Arch 108) in the City of Brotherly Love, sharing his genius from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
