‘Freedom of expression is once again under fire. We live in an era in which YouTube clips can inspire hatred and terrorism thousands of miles away from their creators; in which “fake news” and internet echo chambers hijack public deliberation; and in which universities that suppress illiberal speech are condemned as illiberal themselves. This day-long philosophical conversation will interrogate how we should defend, or otherwise qualify, the ideal of free speech in the face of the charge that it objectionably protects dangerous expression.’
