Seminar on Free Speech

Spring 2023

Tuesday 4:00 - 6:00 PM, Rockefeller 102

The sessions of the Seminar on Free Speech are premised on pre-reading of the papers. The speakers will not present their papers, the sessions are devoted to Q&A and open discussion. The papers will be made available here at least a week before the colloquium. All are invited to attend and participate, but please note that priority in asking questions and raising points for discussion will be given to the students enrolled in the Seminar.
