Amos Guiora, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will present a discussion on his forthcoming book, Tolerating Extremism, as part of the Tanner Humanities Center’s Work-in-Progress lecture series. The November 15 discussion will run from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. in room 143 of the Carolyn Tanner Irish Humanities Building on the University of Utah campus. Admission is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided to attendees.
Guiora’s book focuses on a myriad of issues including the U.S. civil rights movement, child endangerment in the context of religious extremism, soccer hooliganism, public demonstrations against women singing, unbridled religious extremist incitement, violent neo-Nazism, extreme right wing actions, multiculturalism, the limits of free speech, tolerating intolerance and the social compact. Examining these questions requires analyzing limits and rights; doing so in the context of extremism is the “core” of this book.
