Sami Shah: God Damn It

What is the importance of free speech in writing? From acts of blasphemy in religious communities to political dissidence in democracy and the rise of satire in journalism, Sami Shah explores the power of offence – and how it’s never as simple as we think it is.

This is a free event. No bookings are required.
