Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates

Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates: Are Liberals Stifling Intellectual Diversity on Campus?

Airs Sunday, May 3, at 6 p.m. Recent cancelations of conservative speakers, rescinded honorary degrees, and scrutiny of certain campus groups have heightened perceptions that there is pervasive liberal intolerance on campuses. Are liberals shutting down speech and debate on campus? Or is this theory a myth, based on the preponderance of liberals at universities rather than intentionally discriminatory actions? The debaters are Greg Lukianoff, Angus Johnston, Kirsten Powers, and Jeremy Mayer.

Savannah Music Festival

Savannah Music Festival: Eric Kim

Airs Thursday, April 30, at 8 p.m. While Beethoven is generally acknowledged as the first great composer of cello sonatas, there have been numerous outstanding works written for the cello as a solo instrument over the last three centuries. Composers such as Boccherini, Grieg, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Shostakovich and Britten all wrote compositions that every cellist must come to terms with at some point in their career. In this episode we listen to a cello recital featuring Eric Kim, a veteran of the SMF chamber music series, former principal cellist of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and current professor of cello at the Indiana University School of Music.

The comic book, published today, will be distributed through the Department of Pediatrics’ Reach Out and Read program. Tarver wanted to embed the message in something that kids and parents would both enjoy.
