The 2019 International Symposium on Digital Ethics and Policy will feature a new format this year. The event will consist of a public event taking place in Regents Hall, and a semi-public event at the School of Communication. During the public section on November 7, a panel of national experts will debate if and how extreme speech can be curtailed online. Following the panel, the CDEP will host an award luncheon during which it will pass out its first Digital Ethics Award to Taylor Dumpson as well as a Student Digital Ethics Award to a yet-to-named student. Both events are free and open to the Loyola community and the public, though reservations are required.   

In addition to these events, throughout the day on November 7 and 8, the Center is hosting a research colloquium during which six pairs of researchers will present research papers to each other in a small setting. This event is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students of the School of Communication. Others who are interested should email CDEP Program Director Bastiaan Vanacker ( in order to get access to this part of the colloquium.
