EVENTS AND ENGAGEMENTS IN 2012
The Center partnered with Inter-American University, Puerto Rico and Latina/o Critical Legal Theory, Inc. ( LatCrit) to sponsor the South-North Exchange on Theory, Culture and Law (SNX), a project designed to bring together critical theorists from various disciplines and regions of the Western hemisphere to discuss problems in the application of legal theory to current social problems and policy issues. In May 2012, the SNX convened in Curridabat, Costa Rica; the theme was The Changing Face of Justice: Access to Inter-American System of Human rights.
As part of the efforts to build scholarly partnerships between the Law School and faculties of other disciplines at Seattle University, the Center held two book-launch events for books related to global justice published by Seattle University faculty. The two events focused on Dr. Olufemi Taiwo (Philosophy), How Colonialism Preempted Modernity in Africa (2010), and Dr. Rose Ernst (Political Science), The Price of Progressive Politics: The Welfare Rights Movement in the Era of Colorblind Racism (2010).
