Are 'safe spaces' on campus a threat to freedom of speech? Rob Byrne’s talk problematizes the notion that academia has ever been a ‘safe space’ and discusses what this safety constitutes, and looks like in practice.

Rob Byrne, 23, is a 3rd year Social Sciences student at UKC, Medway. His presentation ‘Are “safe spaces” on campus a threat to freedom of speech?’ problematizes the notion that academia has ever been a ‘safe space’, as well as discusses what this safety constitutes, and looks like in practice. It looks to address the balancing act that universities and student unions engage in as they attempt to secure academic freedom for all, whilst alongside maintaining as much protection for students with marginalized identities as possible, without ignoring, too, and of course, the role the media has played in informing this dialogue.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
