Dirty Sexy Policy will bring together prominent scholars, attorneys, activists, regulators, and journalists to explore current challenges facing media policy and the broader stakes that citizens and policy critics share. Participants on three panels will engage in a lively discussion and debate through a moderated Q&A to explore content regulation of obscenity and indecency, structural regulation of broadband technologies, and the broader stakes that policy critics share. Our keynote speakers are Des Freedman, Goldsmiths University, London, and Nicholas Johnson, former FCC Commissioner and Visiting Faculty, University of Iowa College of Law.
