Does UNH Need a Porn Policy?

Should UNH block access to pornographic web sites?  Students from the Women’s Studies 798 Colloquium, Cyberbodies: Gender, Race, and Technology, will hold a dialogue discussing the controversial issue of online pornography on our campus.  This program comes out of a role play activity in which we attempt to fashion a policy for the UNH libraries.  Some of the participants will present anti-pornography arguments, while others will advocate for academic/intellectual freedom.  Still others will discuss the creation of community-based (rather than law enforcement-based) solutions.  Our goal is to find a compromise between these groups (if possible).  There will also be time for audience members to express their views.  
Facilitated by Discovery Author Courtney Marshall.
