Banned & Challenged Books
Academic Term and Year
What makes a banned book controversial? From the times of Aristotle to the publishing arrival of Harry Potter, books have been questioned, challenged, censored, burned, and banned. Personal and group criteria have been used to "rid" society of controversial views of objectionable content, such as pornography, new age religion, heresies, inappropriate language, alternative lifestyles. Examine challenged and banned books, court cases, censorship issues, and reconsideration forms. Become more knowledgeable and aware of the history of challenged and banned books-- a book promoter, not book banner. Prerequisite: Read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn prior to course start date. Target audience: educators, media specialists, book enthusiasts.
