Free Speech on Campus: A Special Forum

Free SpeechWednesday, February 20
5:00 – 6:30 PM
Life Sciences Center 100
15 Dewey Field Road
Hanover, NH

What do we mean by "freedom of expression" or "freedom of speech?" Should the definition be shaped by the specific needs of the Dartmouth academic community or should it be universally applicable? Should Dartmouth college recognize that the question of freedom of expression is sufficiently important that it should be accorded the same level of official attention as the honor principle?

These, and similar questions, are debated increasingly in academic communities across the nation, including at Dartmouth. They are at the heart of a public forum organized by some concerned Dartmouth undergraduates under the sponsorship of OSHER@Dartmouth.


  • Rohan Chakravarty '21 is a government major from Austin, TX who participates in government research and student assembly on campus.
  • Tanner H. Jones '22, Member of Dartmouth Debate Squad and columnists for the D. From Edina, Minnesota.
  • Michael E. Manda '22, Member of Dartmouth Debate Squad. From Jefferson City, Missouri.

Moderator: Edward M. Bradley, Professor of Classics Emeritus

As China emerges as a major global power, it faces complex challenges in its domestic economic, social, environmental and political affairs and its relations with Asian neighbors, the United States and the broader international community. Expert presenters from China, East Asia, Europe, and the U.S. will describe and analyze these challenges. Drawing on their extensive professional and personal experiences, the speakers will explore a wide range of topics: issues and expectations within Chinese society today; the dramatic reduction in overall poverty and the rise of a middle class; the roles of the Chinese Communist Party and its leadership; the outlook for China's economy, long fueled by exports and substantial foreign investment; China's aspirations in technology and innovation; the environmental impact of China's industrial expansion and its role in addressing climate change worldwide; relations with neighboring countries in Northeast and Southeast Asia; and current and future U.S.-China relations, including controversies over trade, human rights, and the U.S. role in the stability and security of the Asia-Pacific region.

OSHER@Dartmouth will live-stream the 2019 Camden Conference from DHMC's Auditorium H. The registration fee includes admission to all three days of the conference. For more information, click here to view a PDF of the event brochure, or visit
