Symposium: Free speech and social media

EMU graduate Gwenyth Andrusiak discusses how the definition of free speech has evolved to adapt to the rise of internet communication.

Social media has made it possible for any individual to publicly present their thoughts to a large audience. The rise of this modern form of communication has made it more difficult for American courts to define the boundaries of both protected and unprotected speech. EMU graduate Gwenyth Andrusiak analyzes court cases and research publications to better understand how courts decide whether something that’s said on social media should be allowed, or suppressed.
