Burning Books

Thursday 1:40 - 4:20 p.m. / Section 020

 

Ideas are dangerous. Unconvinced? Look at how far some groups and individuals have gone to suppress, or even destroy, ideas. Not only ideas, but anyone or anything that threatens the status quo faces destruction. Through immersive, game-based learning, we will visit the two trials of Galileo Galilei, as well as attempts in South Carolina to ban the Harry Potter novels. Join us as we explore book burning from multiple perspectives, and recognize the patterns that lead to the suppression of ideas and movements.
