About This Event


Uncivil Speech and the First Amendment Panel at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law, Tuesday, March 25, Wynne Courtroom and Atrium, Inlow Hall, 6pm. What makes discourse and conduct civil rather than uncivil? Is civility more important in some contexts than others?  Is incivility under-appreciated?  How does the First Amendment limit efforts by individuals and institutions to promote civility and discourage incivility?  This panel convenes two First Amendment scholars, a professor of law and public policy, and a psychologist who studies workplace incivility to consider these and related questions. This panel program, entitled "Uncivil Speech and the First Amendment," is the IU McKinney¹s School of Law’s contribution to the IUPUI Common Theme, "Find Your Voice and Hear My Voice” campus-wide initiative that invites IUPUI students, staff, faculty, and the community to engage in a discussion and deeper exploration of civil discourse in the classroom, work place and public sphere.

Sheila Kennedy, Professor of Law and Policy, School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) at IUPUI

Michael Sliter, Assistant Professor of Psychology, IUPUI School of Science
