We’re used to talks being given by some invited luminary to a crowd who, at the end, gets to ask questions. At Portland State University, philosophy professor Peter Boghossian recently turned this structure on its head, hosting the first of his “Reverse Q&A” events, where audience members became the speakers. The event was a success, allowing new voices, your voices, to be heard, mostly about the realities of living and learning on a highly Woke college campus, where Critical Social Justice has profoundly effected most aspects of life. An event like this, where students and others can speak up, was also necessary; Portland State University recently ranked in the bottom ten public universities in the nation for free speech on campus, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in education (FIRE). Join Peter and others in the Portland State University community as they test this approach and speak up.
