Hate Speech and the First Amendment: Why Neither is a Stable Entity
April 8 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join us for an evening with esteemed literary theorist and scholar Stanley Fish, Ph.D., for a discussion on hate speech and the first amendment.
Fish argues that hate speech is not a stable entity because it cannot be defined. The first amendment is not a stable entity because it is a rhetoric — a collection of slogans and totemic phrases — rather than a principle with a center.
The talk will be hosted in the main gallery at the Zarrow Center for Art & Education, with a reception to follow. As always, admission is free.
