Totalitarianism Of The ›left‹? Cancel Culture — Buzzword Of The Moment

Cancel Culture ― since 2020, we’ve been hearing and reading the term more and more often. But how does Cancel Culture differ from historical cases of censorship, boycott and no­platforming? Where do boycotts in the arts and culture lead us to, who do they weaken, and when are they legitimate? Which voices are part of public discourse, and which are absent from the outset without being canceled? A conversation with writer Olivier Guez, linguist John McWhorter [via live stream], and journalist Nesrine Malik, author of the essay »We Need New Stories«.
