  Promoting Democratic Speech in the Cl...  
(Seminar/Conference)

Promoting Democratic Speech in the Classroom: According to the Anti-Defamation League, incidents of white supremacist propaganda on college campuses has doubled during the 2017/2018 academic year. Extremists groups affiliated with propaganda threatening minoritized groups such as Jews, Blacks, Muslims, non-white immigrants and LGBTQ+ people, are protected from sanction by claiming their first amendment right to free speech. What recourse do universities have? How can universities be sites of justice-seeking conversation and discourse? The objectives of this session are twofold: to explore how characteristics of democratic speech environments might be implemented in the classroom; and, to explore the role of faculty in countering extremist ideologies through an ethic of care and a commitment to "collective courage."
