- Andrew Doyle
Andrew Doyle is a playwright, journalist, and satirist. He is the author of many articles, several plays—including Borderland, The Second Mr Bailey, and Reacher’s Point—as well two books of satire under the name ‘Titania McGrath’: Woke, A Guide to Social Justice, and My First Little Book of Intersectional Activism. He holds a doctorate in renaissance poetry from the University of Oxford.
Ralston College presents a lecture with Andrew Doyle followed by a discussion and audience Q & A with Stephen Blackwood. Doyle discusses his new book, Free Speech and Why it Matters, and offers trenchant examples of recent curtailment of the freedom of speech and thought. He provides a lively account of why free speech and free expression are vital for a thriving culture and describes the kinds of degradation that result when a wide array of ideas are not examined in the public square.
The event took place online on March 4th, 2021.
