CAS 2500 - Breaking the Law Theme Seminar


The dominant global forces that have defined the 21st century have massively transformed law and legal frameworks, at both local and global levels. How do states assert power and enact violence through law, and how are these enactments resisted, challenged, and overcome? What does justice mean in relation to citizenship, political dissent, and political discourse in the U.S.? In relation to international human rights regimes and post-conflict justice mechanisms? In relation to global disparities in access to health care and other basic human goods? How are our understandings of our own bodies, lives, and futures shaped by law? This four-credit team-taught interdisciplinary course sets out these and other central questions about law, justice, social change, human rights, globalization, and technology in the new global era.
