Free Speech in WWI Wisconsin

Professor Tim Shiell, Director of the Center for the Study of Institutions and Innovation at UW-Stout, will discuss the limits of free speech in Wisconsin and the Chippewa Valley during the Great War, including the major rationales for and against permitting anti-war speech. The Chippewa Valley presents a unique and complicated case study of this issue during World War I as two foreign language newspapers, Der Herold [German] and The Reform [Norwegian], held pacifist positions that attracted scrutiny and controversy.
