Constitution Day Panel
RISD invites students, faculty and staff to join our new General Counsel, Renee Byas, and select panelists, Jessica Silbey, Professor of Law, Yanakakis Faculty Research Scholar at Boston University; Jared A. Goldstein, Professor of Law, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Roger Williams University School of Law; and Greggory Keith Spence, Esq., Senior Advisor and Principal of Palladian Hill Strategies, former Vice President and General Counsel and University Professor at the New School and its Parsons School of Design and Brandeis University, for a discussion around First Amendment issues and the Constitution in the classroom, the studio and the critique process. 

How does the Constitution set forth the rights that we share as Americans in all places in its language and amendments? How does the First Amendment and the “IP Clause” of the Constitution work together to ideally promote diversity of expression and community resilience? How do the dynamics established by the American founders play out in classes, studios, and crits? What role can we, as artists and designers, play in challenging or furthering these discussions?
