Panel discussion on intellectual freedom at Columbia College Chicago 4/13/09
I’m organizing a panel discussion at the Columbia College Chicago Library (http://www.lib.colum.edu/) on intellectual freedom, and would like to invite you join in or attend, if you're in the Chicago area.
The program is in conjunction with the NEA-sponsored Big Read, and the title of the discussion is: “Burning bright: a dialogue on creative freedom in the age of new media”. We’ll be discussing concepts of censorship both governmental and non-governmental, including corporate bad faith litigation and self-censorship, as well as sampling and appropriation. The panel will run from 6-8 pm on April 13, 2009. We’re working out the technology to enable distance participation (leaning toward Skype and Twitter, as of now).
Confirmed participants include:
Cole Robertson, coordinator/moderator (yours truly)
Stacia Yeapanis, new media artist, member of the MoCP’s Midwest Photographers Project and soon to be published in the MoCP/Aperture book series ‘MP3’
Al Gini, Ph. D., philosopher specializing in business ethics, Professor @ Loyola School of Business Management
Steve Edwards, acting program director, WBEZ
Karen Fiorito, political artist/printmaker (via conference call from LA)
DJ Sundance, recording artist/first female DJ @ WVAM Chicago (102.7 PM)
So… Feel free to contact me or leave a comment if you have suggestions for good panel members, questions/issues you'd like to see covered, or if you'd like to join in! Cheers,
