Description

Freedom of Expression Scholars Conference 5

The Floyd Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression invited applications to participate in the fifth annual Freedom of Expression Scholars Conference (FESC). The conference will be held at Yale Law School in New Haven, Connecticut from April 29 – 30, 2017. 

At FESC, scholars and practitioners discuss works-in-progress on the freedoms of speech, expression, press, association, petition, and assembly as well as on related issues of knowledge and information policy. FESC has become a fixture on the calendar of leading First Amendment thinkers and scholars nationwide. The paper titles and attendees from prior conferences are available here: 201620152014, and 2013.

Each accepted paper is assigned to a discussant, who provides feedback and leads a conversation at the conference. Workshop sessions are typically lively discussions among authors, discussants, and participants. Sessions run from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. Conference participants are expected to read the papers in advance and to attend the entire conference.
