Co-Sponsor; Young Lakota: Film Screening & Discussion

March 21, 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Jerome Greene Hall, Room 104

Join us for a screening of "Young Lakota", and a conversation with Professor Barbara Gurr about reproductive justice in Native communities.

“Young Lakota” follows a number of Native American women, including Cecelia Fire Thunder, the first female president of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and their effort to oppose extremely restrictive abortion policies in South Dakota. In response to the South Dakota Legislature’s attempt to pass some of the most restrictive legislation in the country, Fire Thunder seeks to bring a women’s health clinic to Pine Ridge Reservation. This film highlights many critical issues including the fraught relationship between Native American tribes and state governments; the many barriers to reproductive health access that affect women of color; and the role young people can take on in mobilizing their communities for positive change. 

Tea, coffee, and cookies will be served. 

This event is free and open to the public. If you require any disability accommodations to attend or participate in this program, please let the event organizers know.

Co-Sponsor; About Abortion: Terminating Pregnancy in Twenty-First-Century America with Carol Sanger

March 27, 2017 - 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Jerome Greene Hall, Room 106

A panel discussion and reception in honor of the new book by Professor Carol Sanger

Panelists Include:

Khiara Bridges, Professor of Law and Anthropology, Boston University School of Law

David Pozen, Professor of Law, Columbia Law School

Stephanie Toti, Senior Counsel, Center for Reproductive Rights & Lead Counsel, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt

Join us to celebrate the publication of this eye-opening book which explores the legal, social, and political contours of abortion in American life. In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, About Abortion arrives at a critical time for public examination of the dense interplay between law, culture, and abortion. Legal scholars, writers, and advocates will reflect on About Abortion and its importance in insisting on abortion as a fundamental right and on normalizing the experience.

co-sponsor; Executive Time: the Death Penalty's Appropriation of the Instant with David Wills

March 30, 2017 - 4:30pm - 6:30pm
"Executive Time: the Death Penalty's Appropriation of the Instant"
The death penalty's programmed interruption of ordinary mortal time brings about, I argue, a thorough reconfiguration of human temporality. In particular, once capital punishment is separated from torture, and becomes a "punctual" operation rather than one involving duration, then it is required to manage the instant, which remains an obsessive concern for American death penalty jurisprudence even in most recent Supreme Court decisions. My paper will examine the version of instantanization that takes place with the introduction of the guillotine, in the context of the broader question of what it means to know--thanks to the state--the moment of one's death.
