The School of Communication's Center for Digital Ethics & Policy and

the School of Law's Ray and Mary Simon Chair in Constitutional Law

 

presents

Governed by a legal framework developed largely in a pre-internet era, only a limited range of extreme speech falls outside the scope of the First Amendment. This panel will discuss whether the recent emergence of the alt-right and reports that right-wing violence is on the rise should make us reconsider how we deal with extreme speech online. Are the traditional free speech justifications for not barring extreme speech still valid in a time when the market place of ideas has been replaced by filter bubbles?
