Freedom of Speech as an Academic Discipline.
Haiman, Franklyn S.
Since its formation, the Speech Communication Association's Committee on Freedom of Speech has played a critical leadership role in course offerings, research efforts, and regional activities in freedom of speech. Areas in which research has been done and in which further research should be carried out include: historical-critical research, in which an outstanding model is Leonard Levy's "Legacy of Suppression: Freedom of Speech and Press in American History"; case or field studies, such as the studies of the Rap Brown speech in Cambridge, Maryland, in the summer of 1967; empirical and experimental studies on communication effects, such as those on obscenity or the impact of violence on radio and television programs; and critical analyses and theory development, which involve the most difficult and most important scholarship and for which twelve specific issues are ready for perusal.
