    How does “free speech” operate on a private, liberal arts campus? Where are the legal boundaries? How do we make sense of the impact of speech on others, especially in relation to power, equity, and privilege? Where are the tensions between speech and community? This symposium seeks to explore these questions and more as we situate them in the context of Lewis & Clark College.
