The Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression and Information Society Project at Yale Law School will host the third annual Freedom of Expression Scholars Conference (FESC) at Yale Law School on May 2-3, 2015.
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, but we welcome paper submissions and applications to participate as discussant from a wide range of scholars. Titles and abstracts of papers should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 20, 2015. Those interested in participating as discussants or participants without submitting a paper should also contact email@example.com by February 20, 2015.
Workshop versions of accepted papers will be due on April 3, 2014 so that they can be circulated to discussants and conference participants in advance.
