Discussing Free Speech
Protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution, freedom of speech and expression are considered by many to be fundamental to a democratic society. In recent months events across the country have raised new questions about these protections. As a result, Bunker Hill Community College has chosen to focus on free speech for this year's Constitution Day observance.
BHCC faculty will facilitate discussions on aspects of free speech in the D-lounge. Five discussions will take place concurrently, each at a different table in the D-lounge. Each discussion will be led by a BHCC faculty member on a topic aligned with their areas of interest and expertise. Topics will include free speech in historical context, free speech and public protest, and free speech and the body. Participants will be able to drop by and join a discussion of one of the five topics of their choice for a few minutes, or stay for the entire event and eventually participate in all five discussions.
