First Amendment: Free Speech
This Seminar will explore the theory and practice of free speech in American History using landmark court decisions that have helped to define the limits of such freedoms.
This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings (found here), and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.
