FACULTY IN THE NEWS
Camille Gear Rich participated in a discussion on KPCC Air Talk about free speech. “I think we’re entering an era in which people are much more aware of the need for some protection, some regulation in terms of how speech is orchestrated, that government is in a position where it’s trying to create conditions where a variety of speakers with different sensitivities can participate in public debate. So when it says “Congress shall make no law,” there are all sorts of ways in which we have historically carved out particular things, particular areas, where there is a need for regulation … there is a need for let’s say, speed bumps, or containers … where there are certain kinds of speech that are so coercive to public debate or dangerous for other reasons that we impose some limitations and we’ve created definitions around obscenity, around threats, around fighting words, to try to create those conditions that really will allow for a truly participatory and rich conversation,” Rich said.
