The Internet has brought into conflict different cultural and legal norms around freedom of expression in unprecedented ways. In conjunction with her spring seminar, CHV/PHI: Free Speech in the Internet Age, Visiting Professor for Distinguished Teaching, Susan Brison's, has organized a series of public events examining how the value of free speech can be protected while we address the harms of cyber harrassment, revenge porn, fake news, and online and campus hate speech.
