U. of Regina Lecture Topic Offends Business Group

June 13, 2011

The University of Regina planned with a local business group to sponsor a series of lectures by professors in a public park during the summer, but the faculty members have all called off their talks after the business group objected to one of the topics planned for discussion, Global Regina reported. The lecture topic was the movement to boycott Israel as a means of helping the Palestinians. When Emily Eaton, the geography professor who planned that topic, said that she was uninvited to speak, her colleagues decided they would not speak either.
