The Floyd Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression invited participates in the eighth annual Freedom of Expression Scholars Conference (FESC). The conference will be held virtually on Oct. 24-25, 2020, 12pm to 6pm each day.
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: 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013.
Each accepted paper is assigned to a discussant, who will summarize the paper, provide feedback, and lead a discussion. Workshop sessions are typically lively discussions among authors, discussants, and participants. Conference participants are expected to read the papers in advance and to attend the entire conference.
