Klausen discusses her book and cartoons that “shook the world”

At Brandeis University, Professor Jytte Klausen addressed the causes of violence and controversy over a Muslim cartoon editorial published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in September 2005: her most recent book was censored by Yale University, and at the talk, Brandeis journalism Professor Eileen McNamara commented: “The irony that a university press would make the decision not to publish the cartoons that gave rise to the violence and the controversy that followed is anathema not just to the idea of academic freedom but to the specifics of this case.”
