      Add to Calendar 2021-12-01T20:00:00 2021-12-01T21:30:00 America/New_York The On (and Off) Campus First Amendment Crisis Recent high-profile controversies suggest there is a First Amendment crisis on college campuses nationwide. Overt decisions to restrict controversial speakers, and more subtle efforts to suppress dissent, appear to be regular occurrences at institutions of higher education. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court addressed the sanctioning of a high school student's statements via Snapchat when she failed to make the varsity cheer squad. In this talk, Jessica will explore the hot topics of free speech on college campuses, including free speech areas and controversial speakers, the right to control curriculum and classroom speech, and the battle over student organization funding and government speech. About the Speaker Jessica Price, JD, is Associate General Counsel for the University of Oregon. Her portfolios include international risk, national security, and free speech. She serves as the primary attorney advising the research and student conduct portfolios at the university. Much of her work has focused on changing federal guidance and executive orders on sponsored research, foreign influence, immigration, and diversity. She spent six years at the ACLU of Southern California, litigating inmates' rights, English learner students' rights, and police practices, and managing a disability class action. She then worked at UCLA as a Special Assistant to the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Her work at UCLA included chairing appeals for student sexual misconduct matters, and serving as the Interim Title IX Coordinator. Ms. Price graduated from Yale College and Harvard Law School, and started her legal career with a clerkship in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana and then for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. She has been recognized by Poder Magazine's Top 20 Latinos Under 40, California Lawyer's Attorney of the Year, the California legislature for her work on behalf of women and children, and the 2019 University of Oregon Senate's Shared Governance, Transparency, and Trust Award. She is president of her local rotary, a member of the Oregon State Bar's Legal Ethics Commission, and she serves on the board of the Oregon Women Lawyers. This event will be moderated by Akiko Hashimoto. She is Vice President of the Yale Club of Oregon and SW Washington. Akiko Hashimoto, Ph.D., Yale University 1984, is Visiting Professor of Sociology and Asian Studies at Portland State University, and Faculty Fellow at the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University. She is author and editor of several volumes on cultural sociology and comparative sociology. Her latest book is The Long Defeat: Cultural Trauma, Memory and Identity in Japan (Oxford University Press, 2015), available also in Japanese (Misuzu Shobo, 2017) and Chinese (Beijing Imaginist, 2019). false

      From performance groups to service organizations, business clubs to athletic teams, cultural associations to politics and government unions, hundreds of student organizations have shaped the vibrancy and diversity of campus life at Yale. 

      Over the years, how has the role of student organizations evolved? What are the new challenges and opportunities awaiting these groups? How can alums and current students work together as we emerge from the pandemic?

      Join us on Thursday evening to hear what Yale College students (Ray Jin 25, Eleanor Ann Schoenbrun 25, and Ken Yan 23) think, and share with us your perspectives. We look forward to your insights and inspiration.

The second lecture will consider some texts found in the Scrolls that are of special interest for Christianity, including one that speaks of a figure who is called Son of God. The two sessions will occur on December 6 and 13. false
