Banned! Challenges to Intellectual Freedom Around the World
Instructor  Karen Jensen
FYE F100    F02
Wednesdays 3:30 - 5:00 pm
     September 4 - November 6     CRN 74742
Huck Finn, Fahrenheit 451, Captain Underpants…What do all these books have in common? They’ve been banned!  Have you ever seen a library display for Banned Books Week? It’s not just a publicity stunt; books, movies and more really do get censored in today’s information-rich world.  Understand the dilemmas faced by librarians, publishers, booksellers and writers when faced with information that may be “too hot to handle.” In this course we will examine the motives for and means of censorship in print and online, and discuss why it is sometimes difficult - yet vital – for libraries to defend intellectual freedom.

A scroll of papyrus paper containing nine mathematical problems, a stone-age tool, a pot shard, a credit card, a microchip … every object, found in every corner of the globe tells a story of how humans, in just over two million years, have shaped our world and have been shaped by it. We will look at museum artifacts that shine a light on human history worldwide and in Alaska.
