Last night's panel discussion at Cooper Union was a sold-out success! Thanks to everyone who joined us last night. We thought it was a riveting discussion, and many thanks to panelists Dalia Mogahed, George Packer, Joan Wallach Scott, and Jacob Weisberg.
If you were able to join us (either in-person or watched it stream from the PEN website), please let us know what you thought of the event in comments. If you weren't able to join us, we'll have video of the event early next week.
We think last night's discussion proved that when people gather and engage in thoughtful discussion and even respectful disagreement, it can only benefit us all. That's why "global debate" rather than "ideological exclusion" of scholars like Professor Ramadan is so important. (If you agree, send a letter to the Secretary of State Clinton asking her to retire the practice of ideological exclusion for good).
Professor Ramadan heads to Washington, D.C., Monday to meet with members of Congress and speak at Georgetown.
