Freedom of Speech
- Class number: 13165
- Term: Spring 2013
This seminar examines First Amendment guarantees related to speech, press, assembly, and rights to petition the government for redress of grievances. It begins with an historical overview of free speech in the United States. Our case studies highlight the interpretive battles that emerge in debates over proposed limits on free expression in relation to flag burning, hate speech, child pornography, invasion of privacy, and defamation. We conclude by looking at rights of free association that arise in a number of contexts but most prominently in discussions related to the USA PATRIOT Act and the so-called War on Terror.
