Community discusses free speech on campus By Brian Sobotko ’16

April 18, 2014

Over 50 people filled KJ 102 on Wednesday, April 16 for a 90-minute discussion about free speech at Hamilton. The event, presented by the AHI Undergraduate Fellows and the Days-Massolo Center, asked the questions, How do we as a college community draw the line between acceptable and unacceptable speech? and What forces shape our understanding of appropriate discourse?

The AHI and the Days-Massolo Center are the two groups whose conflict last semester about the appropriateness of the Real Talk Dialogue Series helped spark the discussion on race that has permeated campus for the last seven months.

The panel, composed of Director of Diversity and Inclusion Amit Taneja, Professor of Anthropology Bonnie Urciuoli, President of the AHI Undergraduate Fellows Dean Ball 14, Joe Simonson 15 and Professors of Government Rob Martin and Peter Cannav, delivered opening remarks before turning the conversation over to those in attendance for a town hall format.

Simonson opened the discussion by explaining that the event was not designed to debate U.S. policy but the more specific issue of free speech on college campuses. He asked, What does it mean not to tolerate hate speech? and Should we be restricting the speech of campus members? He closed by asserting his own beliefs about what we do if hate arrives on campus. He advocated for direct conversation and discussion and explained that through engagement, not censorship, does a community or society progress.

Cannav continued the conversation by asking if freedom of discussion and debate trumps other values. He told a story that would be continually referenced throughout the discussion about a student who, in a Political Theory class, argued against marriage equality. Cannav emailed the student after the discussion to congratulate him on taking an unpopular stand on a controversial issue; however, Cannav discussed the internal dilemma he experienced about the difference between advocating that position or a position opposed to interracial marriage. He also referenced the Colleges welcoming of political activist Ward Churchill to speak, despite hiscontroversial comments about the victims of the 9/11 attacks in 2005.

Martin continued the dialogue and emphasized that the objective of colleges must be to find the truth. He acknowledged that all free speech comes with some limitations and asked about the logic of those limitations. He also pointed out that oftentimes, offensive speech gets in the way of productive conversations.

Ball asserted that many Americans have taken free speech for granted and have forgotten that it is something that we must continuously discuss. He explained that the AHI asks questions that often do not occur on campus and expressed regret that he has often been labeled as intolerant, ignorant or bigoted for asking certain questions.

Taneja, countering some points made, pointed out that just because we can ask a question does not mean it is worth asking. He stressed the importance of creating an environment in which care and compassion are central. He also emphasized the need for a distinction to be made between dialogue and debate, encouraging dialogue through which one tries to understand someone else instead of trying to win an argument. He conceded that dialogue often creates more questions instead of answering them.

In the half-century since Berkeleys Free Speech Movement, the rousing oratory of Mario Savio and iconic images of mass demonstrations have come to stand in for the 1964 movement and its legacy. But all that makes for a very blurry snapshot, historian Felicia Viator, a Cal grad and visiting lecturer, told a gathering of students in Doe Library recently.

To really understand the FSM and the whole period one has to go deeper, she suggested. Broad brush strokes are not enough.

Her remarks were intended as words of inspiration to kick off HackFSM, a 12-day hackathon that, she said, shared the FSMs aim to create a free marketplace of ideas.

For HackFSM, organized by the Bancroft Library and Digital Humanities @ Berkeley, students were invited to develop a compelling user interface to the Bancrofts Free Speech Movement Digital Archive, a large trove of texts, images and audio recordings that the Bancroft digitized and published to the Web in the mid-1990s.The original online collection was one of the Bancrofts first forays into digital archiving, and a big step toward making primary-source FSM materials accessible to students and the public, notes Mary Elings, head of digital collections at the Bancroft.

By todays standards, though, the FSM Digital Archive is static and not very engaging. Researchers can download and read files one at a time, but theres no way to access the archive as a single data set as scholars in the digital humanities and digital social sciences are now doing harnessing computer power to look for patterns across bodies of text, carry out computational analysis or visualize information in new and compelling ways.

Throwing out a challenge

Students were tasked with developing features that would be helpful to a researcher whos just exploring the FSM; those might include topic modeling, visualizations, mapping or timelines, Elings said. Think of different ways you might want to come into the data if you were a humanist doing a paper.

As a human being I can look in an archive through a small amount of newspaper pages per day, said Andrea Horbinski, a grad-student digital humanist who helped organize HackFSM. But if digitized with the right program, I can analyze a newspapers entire publishing history in a few hours.

FREMONT — In a move that has caught the attention of First Amendment advocates, the City Council on Tuesday tightened restrictions on public demonstrations, as well as other “disruptive conduct” and free speech that “disturbs and antagonizes” people attending special city events on public property.

The ordinance bans anyone preventing others “from viewing, hearing or meaningfully participating in the event,” and cases where “people conduct free speech in a way that … makes special event participants … unable to access or enjoy the event,” a city staff report states.

It also prohibits unauthorized soliciting or sales at events, or the use of bicycles, skates, skateboards or amplified sound equipment, unless approved by terms of a city-issued permit.

“A lot of our special events are festivals with children walking around, and having a skateboard or bike could cause accidents,” Fremont Deputy City Attorney Bronwen Lacey said before the meeting. “It’s about safety and ensuring that people attending the events can participate without disruption.”

The city also would create a Free Speech Zone at such events to allow demonstrations or other political activity without interfering with the event.

“It protects free speech rights of the participants, but also allows the city to control those activities, within reason,” Assistant City Attorney Debra Margolis said.

However, a San Francisco-based American Civil Liberties Union lawyer said that a person’s right to general political activity is protected by law at public events.

“You don’t have to let someone be part of your parade, but you have to allow them to express themselves at it, even if you have a special permit for it,” said Michael Risher, an ACLU senior staff attorney. “The government must allow free speech as long as it’s not disruptive.”

The question is how exactly is “disruptive conduct” being defined.

“It may be permissible to restrict a demonstration of 20 people to a particular area,” Risher said. “But forcing someone who is getting signatures for a petition into a free speech zone would be illegal and unconstitutional, unless the zone is very large, because it restricts their ability to engage in political activity.”
