Pervasive and Personal: Observations on Free Speech Online

Pervasive and Personal: Observations on Free Speech Online

Monday, February 11, 6:30-8:30pm
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Room I-202, 55 West 13th Street

In this next installment of the Vera List Center’s “Freedom of Speech: A Curriculum for Studies into Darkness” series, discussants will turn from considerations of freedom of speech in a U.S. context (a particular focus of Seminar 1) to how freedom of expression is exercised—and curtailed—in our complex online sphere. By observing the ability of women to safely and securely speak out online, we will bring to the fore the contradictions of the Internet, a seemingly borderless space that is used by people living within borders, a tool that has equalizing potential but is constructed through the hegemony that is Silicon Valley.

Presented in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics and ARTICLE 19.

Free and open to all. RSVP below.
