Professors Kunich and Waldron will debate both de jure and de facto censorship, as well several contemporary cases of censurship on freedom of expression, including the Muhammad cartoons, the recent controversy over the trailer "Innocence of Muslims," and the Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon."  The debate will be moderated by Claudia Haupt of Columbia Law School.
