The HRI-Mellon Legal Humanities Undergraduate Research group invites you to a release party to showcase our collective research on the legal humanities—an emerging field that examines how the law both constitutes and shapes the social world, reflecting and shaping societal values, aspirations, and notions of justice.
The event will feature brief presentations on a broad range of research topics, including empire and gender, enslavement and sexual abuse, anxiety in modern democracies, transitional justice, the gig economy, Palestinian liberation, and the criminalization of Latino male youth.
Join us in breaking the boundaries of your academic discipline and engaging with student researchers in other fields! This event is free and open to all undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and community members. This event is supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
