Bonfire of Liberties: Censorship of the Humanities

August 24, 2015October 15, 2015

This Humanities Texas traveling exhibition addresses the difficult topic of censorship. Censorship has been practiced for nearly as long as there have been materials to censor. The Bonfire of Liberties gives an overview of censorship in its various guises over time. Furthermore, it examines the struggle between those who want to censor difficult, controversial, and revolutionary material from sensitive viewers and those who want to protect the freedoms of all people to read, view, and think for themselves. Viewers may be surprised to learn just how many of their favorite books and plays have been censored at some point in history.

Humanities Texas is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
