Freedom of Expression is essential to us across the disciplines –day in, and day out. This panel, moderated by Nancy Kranich of Rutgers University Libraries and the School of Communication & Information, will include Sarah McLaughlin from F.I.R.E. (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education) who will speak to “know your rights” aspects; Summer Lopez from PEN America who will explore the complexities navigated, particularly on the institutional side; and Nona Faustine, an artist with first-hand experience with censorship. This program is recommended for ages 18 and up.
