Notable conference on race and criminal justice

With thanks to Larry Solum for this tip, I can note this interesting-looking symposium entitled "Race, Crime & Citizenship."  The full schedule is at this link, and here is the official description:

During this symposium, we will consider the contemporary criminal "justice" crisis as a racial phenomenon.  Our goal is to reassert the importance of democracy, equality, and human rights in the organization and operation of the system.  To that end, this symposium brings together scholars, students, activists, and grass-roots organizers, including formerly incarcerated persons, whose work helps us to better understand the macro-and micro-dimensions of the crisis and how best to challenge and change the contradictory nature of the American criminal "justice" system.

Comments

Professor Berman,

Notice of the conference was found in my comment last weeek on the King's College Report on global incarceration rates. (Not that it matters, but I sent Larry the info. on the UCSB conference over the weekend (being an alumnus, living nearby, and having received a flyer some time ago about Professor Crenshaw's talk this Thursday evening).

All the best,
Patrick
