You Can’t Say That! Rewriting Free Speech and Censorship
Are we really free to speak our minds? Most of us would say that free speech is a basic right. Yet, in many different circumstances, we willingly or unwillingly give up this right. For the 13th issue of Revisions: A Journal of Writing, we invite contributions that explore how free speech and censorship affect our words and lives.
Submissions might consider one of the following topics:
- academic freedom and political expression in the classroom
- banned books, films, or music
- social media, anonymity, and internet harassment/trolling
- political correctness
- hate speech or inflammatory symbols
- justifying censorship
- biting your tongue with friends, family, and co-workers
- protest, policing, and surveillance
We invite Queens College students, faculty, and staff to contribute articles (roughly 500-1500 words) and images. Submissions are due November 8, 2015. Please submit a .doc or .jpeg file as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the word “Articles” or “Images” in your subject line. See the Writing at Queens website for past issues and more information.
