Dr. Spona Jovanovic

Dr. Spoma Jovanovic (Communication Studies) received new funding from the National Communication for the project “Voice, Activism, and Democracy: Free Speech Conference.”

This conference will enable students, community members, and faculty to share their scholarship, creative products, and activist interventions surrounding contested campus and community issues (ex: toppling of the Confederate statue Silent Sam, decisions to disinvite campus speakers, the legacy of Occupy Wall Street, anti-immigration protest and speeches). In addition to academic presentations on free speech, the conference will be further designed to include informal events, intergenerational meetings between students and grassroots activists, and cooperative activities with the goal to enhance political friendships among scholars, community members, and students.
