Professor Judith Hawley is taking part in a discussion of sex and pornography in a thought-provoking new BBC Radio series. In the modern Western world, we take free speech for granted. We presume it is our age-old inheritance. But it's not. In this three-part series, historian Professor Fara Dabhoiwala explores how freedom of speech came into being, with extracts from key flashpoints in the past.
In the first programme of the series, Professor Justin Champion joins the debate about the relationship between religion and free speech. Professor Hawley takes up the thread in the second programme to look at how writers and thinkers contested the control of sexual expression by church and state.
