From Banned Books to Democratic Disagreement: Courses on Free Expression
This event has passed.
As colleges seek to prepare the next generation to be independent thinkers and engaged citizens, courses on banned books or democratic disagreement stand to bolster students’ ability to engage in dialogue across difference and deepen student understanding of open inquiry and free expression.
Join the Bipartisan Policy Center for a conversation with three professors who teach courses on controversial speech and free expression. Panelists will explore how they designed and led their classes, and what they’ve learned teaching undergraduates about civil dialogue during this polarized moment.
Panel discussion with:
General Counsel and Secretary to the Board of Trustees, Metropolitan State University of Denver
Kathy M. Newman
Associate Professor of English, Carnegie Mellon University
Professor of Political Science and Business Administration, University of Rochester
Jacqueline Pfeffer Merrill
Director of the Campus Free Expression Project, BPC
