Free Speech in the College Community.
O'Neil, Robert M.
This book discusses freedom of speech issues affecting the college community, in light of "speech codes" imposed by some institutions, new electronic technology such as the Internet, and recent court decisions. Chapter 1 addresses campus speech codes, the advantages and disadvantages of such codes, and their conflict with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Chapter 2 discussion freedom of speech issues for college and university faculty. Chapter 3 discusses the problems posed by computer networks and the Internet in the regulation of speech and academic freedom, while Chapter 4 focuses on the sometimes explosive issue of off-campus speakers invited to speak on campuses. Chapter 5 examines legal challenges to expressive activity by student organizations, while Chapter 6 reviews the limits, if any, that institutions may set for regular student newspapers and underground publications. Chapters 7, 8, 9, and 10 address artistic freedom on campus, academic research and academic freedom, religious speech on the public campus, and free speech on the private campus, respectively. Includes a bibliographic essay. (MDM)
