He will also tell you more about his approach to his art practice and showcase some of his incredible work!

In this talk, Martin Cox will discuss how free speech has come under attack in recent years, and many students want to limit the rights of individuals to express certain ideas. This talk argues that we should fight for the rights of people to say things that are against the popular opinion on a given topic. If we ban unpopular speech we may prohibit some things that turn out, in retrospect, to have been worth saying, and in the process we curtail civil liberty and may lose the art of civilised disagreement. The talk will be followed by a discussion and questions.

He will also share information on the John Locke Institute's global essay competition, which attracts over 7000 submissions a year from all parts of the world, as well as its summer seminars and gap year courses in Oxford, Princeton and Washington DC for exceptional teenagers specialising in Philosophy, Politics, Economics, History, Psychology and Law.

News from The Institute

Restoring bicycles for charity

Although bicycles are not the main mode of transportation in Singapore, they do make a big difference to many low-income families. That was why Nina D, Mahikaa G, Eliza H, Osian O, and Tanisha S from Year 12 decided to take on a bicycle renovation project for their CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service). They were inspired by a new bicycle project instituted last year where Yash Pathania (then in Year 13) repaired and restored old and abandoned bicycles that were piling up at the condominium he was staying at.

Faculty Research

Action Research Projects by Tanglin Teachers

The main focus of what Tanglin teachers conduct research on relates to classroom practice and how to maximise the efficiency of learning both in and outside the classroom. These are examples of excellent action research projects run by teachers striving to be their Personal Best and we hope will inspire faculty members to initiate their own research projects, with support from the Institute and Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
