Description

Why do people censor? For ambition? Religion? Profit? Power? Fear? This global history of attempts to control or silence information examines how censorship has worked, thrived, or failed in different times and places, and how real censorship movements tend to be very different from the centralized, methodical censorship depicted in Orwell's 1984, which so dominates how we imagine censorship today.

Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. – 4:45 p.m., and, when University of Chicago classes are in session, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.
