Rethinking the Limits: Provocative and Extreme Speech | Annenberg School for Communication

November 17 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Democracies are struggling to balance freedom of expression with equality for the weak as well as accountability for harmful speech. There is growing alarm at how internet giants distort the marketplace of ideas, undermine human dignity and derail truth-seeking — but little consensus on what should be done. Can we still have faith in the liberal axiom that the answer to bad speech is more speech? Or will more regulation help? Our virtual roundtable features Pulitzer-winning editorial cartoonist Signe Wilkinson and media anthropologist Sahana Udupa, who studies digital hate, in conversation with media scholar Cherian George.
