On Tuesday,  January 30th, the Martin Center welcomes Greg Lukianoff and Rikki Schlott for a discussion of their new book, The Canceling of the American Mind.



About the book:
The Canceling of the American Mind is the first book to codify cancel culture and survey its effects. The same team that wrote the bestselling Coddling of the American Mind now presents hard data and research on what cancel culture is and how it works, along with hundreds of new examples showing how both the left and the right work to silence their enemies. Additionally, The Canceling of the American Mind offers concrete steps toward reclaiming a free speech culture, with materials specifically tailored for parents, teachers, business leaders, and everyone who uses social media.
