The Anatomy of Cancel Culture with Professor Franciska Coleman

Location: Wilson Classroom - TNH 2.139

Professor Franciska Coleman (University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Law) joins us to discuss her paper: The Anatomy of Cancel Culture. In her paper, Professor Coleman explores how social regulation of speech works in practice on university campuses, and the extent to which social regulation in practice affirms or undermines the stereotypes and caricatures that characterize the cancel-culture wars. We hope you join us!
