Martha Nussbaum Talks with Akbar Ganji
Chicago Public Radio has partnered with the University of Chicago (among other organizations) in a project called Chicago Amplified. From their website: "Chicago Amplified is a Web-based audio archive filled with diverse lectures, conversations, panel discussions, forums and other educational events sponsored by community organizations and institutions throughout the Chicago region and presented here for audio streaming or download. The goal of this project is to make some of the most interesting and informative public programs taking place throughout our community widely available. Chicago Amplified allows you to listen to these events again, or discover them for the first time."
Among the University's first entries in Chicago Amplified is a conversation with Akbar Ganji and our own Martha Nussbaum. Gangi is Iran's most prominent political dissident and writer of A Republican Manifesto, laying out the basis for a full-fledged democracy in Iran. You can listen here to their conversation, and also visit the site for the University of Chicago's contributions to Chicago Amplified.
