For the first time since his suspension, which caused international outrage, ousted professor Thomas Klocek will return to the school that silenced him to discuss the role of free speech at Catholic Universities. DePaul University suspended adjunct professor Thomas Klocek without a hearing for disagreeing with Muslim students over the Arab-Israeli conflict in an out-of-classroom debate. Since then, his case has brought scrutiny on DePaul from media and the academic community while causing division among the University’s own faculty and students.
The forum will also include researcher, author and “conservative battle tank” David Horowitz as well as DePaul professor and Klocek supporter Jonathan Cohen. The event will take place in DePaul’s Cortelyou Commons at 2324 North Fremont Street in Chicago on Wednesday, January 24th at 7:00 PM. The event is free and open to the public.
