Social media have undoubtedly exacerbated the current political crises in our country, and many parties want them held responsible to prevent further damage. How do we balance competing desires for platforms that protect free speech and are free from hate and disinformation?

Political Science Professor Daniel Klinghard, Director of the J.D. Power Center for Liberal Arts and the World and Co-Director of the Charles Carroll Program, and Amit Taneja, Associate Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, are joined by Richard Freije ’81, who is AVP and Senior Counsel at Sun Life Financial and Adjunct Instructor at Clark University and WPI teaching Cyber Law and Policy, for a discussion on regulating social media moderated by Thomas M. Landy, Director of the McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture.
