Free Expression and Constructive Dialogue Research Event

February 12, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

In the Spring of 2019, professors Jennifer Larson (English and Comparative Literature), Mark McNeilly (Kenan-Flagler Business School), and Timothy Ryan (Political Science) began a multi-faceted study to better understand students’ experiences with free speech and constructive dialogue at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The primary data-gathering tool for this study was a survey that all UNC undergraduates were invited to complete, but focus groups discussions with three politically active student organizations were also conducted. From this culminated research came twelve principle findings and a series of recommendations, all of which are detailed in a recently-released report.

During this event, Tim, Jennifer, and Mark will each discuss highlights from the report as well as the research process. This discussion will be followed by a Q&A led by UNC Professors Sarah Treul (Political Science) and Eric Muller (School of Law). The event is hosted by Andy Perrin, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Institute of Arts and Humanities.

No RSVP is required.
