Symposium on Libertad de Expresion
Held in conjunction with the exhibition Libertad de Expresión: the Art of the Americas and Cold War Politics, this symposium will explore the role that freedom of expression has played in Latin American and Caribbean culture, journalism, and politics from post-World War II to the present. Creative and political speech has been alternatively celebrated and vilified by both conservative and leftist governments who were equally threatened by dissent and independent or unconventional thought. The symposium will feature scholars on a range of topics concerned with the freedom of, or restrictions placed upon, expression.
