Universities should, almost by definition, be "safe spaces" for free speech, open discourse and wide-ranging debate on all manner of subjects. Yet over the past couple of decades this cherished status has been steadily eroded, with university campuses now more known for deplatforming and cancelling those who hold views deemed unacceptable by vocal woke students and faculty. Joining Peter Whittle on the #NCFCounterCulture​ sofa to discuss this are: * Prof. Jeremy Black MBE, retired professor of history at the University of Exeter and a prolific author. * Prof. Philip Kiszeley, lecturer in cultural history at the University of Leeds. * Emma Webb, Associate Fellow, Civitas. --------------- SUBSCRIBE: If you are enjoying the show, please subscribe to our channel on YouTube (click the Subscribe Button underneath the video and then Click on the Bell icon next to it to make sure you Receive All Notifications) AUDIO: If you prefer Audio you can subscribe on itunes or Soundcloud.
