The Information Society Project at Yale Law School will host the first Freedom of Expression Scholars Conference (FESC) at Yale Law School on May 4-5, 2013. The FESC is sponsored by the Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression.
The conference brings scholars together to discuss their works-in-progress concerning freedom of speech, expression, press, association, petition, assembly, and related issues of knowledge and information policy.
The conference offers participants an opportunity to receive substantive feedback through group discussion. Each accepted paper will be assigned a discussant, who will lead discussion and provide feedback to the author. Participants will be expected to read papers in advance, and to attend the entire conference.
Participation in the conference is by invitation only. Titles and abstracts of papers should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 22, 2013. Those interested in serving as discussants should also contact email@example.com. Workshop versions of papers are due on April 5, 2013 so that they can be circulated to people attending the conference.
