Constitution Day September 17: Special Event

Celebrate Constitution Day with Brookens Library & ECCE on Monday, September 17th. Faculty in the Library Instructional Services Program have partnered with UIS’ Legal Studies Department and the American Library Association’s (ALA) Office of Intellectual Freedom to present an ECCE Speaker event with a focus on freedoms enshrined in the US Constitution.

Our panel guests for Contemporary Attacks on American Constitutional Freedom: Hate Speech, Political Speech, and the Right to Privacy will include James LaRue, Director of the ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom and Professors Deborah Anthony & Eugene McCarthy from Legal Studies.

Join us for what is sure to be a highly informative panel presentation followed by a lively question and answer period. Refreshments will be served following the Q&A and will also offer an opportunity for direct conversation with our panel guests.
