A conversation on free speech and non-human speakers

Philosophers Professors Rae Langton (Cambridge) and Philip Pettit (Princeton), and political theorist Toni Erskine (UNSW) will come together this evening at Trinity Hall Lecture Theatre for a conversation on 'Free speech and non-human speakers'.
