      1. Taking the controversy over the Danish cartoons of Mohammed as a starting point, Asad, Brown, Butler, and Mahmood engage in a conversation about the implications of the so-called conflict between Islam and liberal democratic values for free speech, democracy, and multiculturalism, and they explore the role of language and critique in these debates.
