Free Speech, Hate Speech, and the Future of Campus Community at the University of Minnesota
From April 9-10, the University of Minnesota and PEN America will co-sponsor “Free Speech, Hate Speech, and the Future of Campus Community at the University of Minnesota” – a two-day series of workshops exploring issues of the First Amendment, unfettered expression, and their interplay with efforts to foster greater inclusion at UMN.
Each workshop will run for two hours, and will be completely open to any and all UMN students, faculty, and administrators who would like to participate. In each session, participants will build upon ongoing campus conversations regarding how concepts of free speech, diversity, and inclusion apply to UMN’s unique campus context, as both a public university with First Amendment obligations and as a home for learning and diverse political and cultural identities. Food and refreshments will be served.
