Banned Books: Literature, Censorship, & Society

What should you be “allowed” to read? Who gets to decide this? Over history, who has made these decisions? Why? This class will read and discuss books that have been banned at some point in time. In tandem with these readings, students will discuss censorship and freedom. The class will dialogue in order to decide whether censorship is ever justified and how the history of censorship has shaped many societies.
School student accounts will be debited at the start of the year for a Membean license.
