An Evening with John Sexton - The Case for Debate

  • Eisner & Lubin Auditorium, Kimmel Center 60 Washington Square South New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

President Emeritus John Sexton will join The Review and Debates to argue why engaging in and allowing for the free and open debate is crucial to today's society. He will discuss the value of expressing diverging viewpoints, the role of debate in political discourse, and restrictions on speech in order to achieve a more complete perspective on our complicated cultural climate. His speech will be followed by a moderated Q&A session as well as questions from the audience. Hors d'oeuvres will be served 6pm onwards! 

John Sexton served as the 15th President of New York University from 2002 to 2015, and as the Dean of NYU Law School from 1988 to 2002. His latest book, "Baseball as a Road to God: Seeing Beyond the Game," published in March 2013, was a New York Times best seller and is based on an undergraduate seminar he teaches at NYU each spring. He was inducted into the National Speech and Debate Association's Hall of Fame in 2003.
