Free speech is a pillar of American democracy, but can there be too much free speech? Does the proliferation of online communication technologies, the universal need for social cohesion and the sensitivities of multicultural communities require us to rethink the limits of free speech?  Join us as we consider "free speech" both within and beyond the borders of Carleton.  Students welcome.
