Dr. Julie Shayne’s Latest Book

Julie ShayneJulie Shayne’s edited collection Taking Risks: Feminist Activism and Research in the Americas is now available with SUNY Press as part of their Praxis: Theory in Action series. The book is an interdisciplinary collection about feminist and women’s social movements in the Americas situated in discussions of activist scholarship. Taking Risks represents the importance of much that CUSP values: interdisciplinary collaboration, undergraduate research, and the discovery core series.

The collection is the product of a seminar session Julie organized at the “Imagining America” conference in Seattle in 2010. Julie co-wrote the Introduction and Conclusion with CUSP and IAS Lecturer Kristy Leissle. Taking Risks also includes a chapter from IAS alum and current MACS student Mahala Lettvin who Julie mentored on her undergraduate research that resulted in the book chapter. Finally, Jessica Manfredi IAS senior and CUSP alum wrote brief introductions to the books’ sections. While Jessica’s pieces are short they draw heavily on the course content of the DC1 she took with Shayne and co-prof Jennifer Atkinson, titled “Place and Displacement in the Americas.” (Taking Risks will be formally released July 1, but is presently available for pre-order.)

Thursday, May 22, 12:00pm – 1:00pm

New Summer Course for CUSP Students: SOCIAL JUSTICE AND THE LAW

B CUSP 131 B - Special Topics In First-Year Learning
10282 B  5  Monday / Wednesday 11:45-2:15pm  Jessica Long     
        
                                                                                                            
Course Description: This course offers a survey of 20th century movements for social justice.  We will examine important legal cases such as Brown v. Board of Education, Lawrence v. Texas and San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez with an eye to the social movements that brought these cases before the courts. Law can be a tool for social justice or it can be an instrument of repression and marginalization and so our guiding questions in this course will be: How is justice achieved by the law? How does the law serve to impede justice?

Throughout the course we will examine journalistic articles and films, interact with guest speakers and use in-class exercises to discover the diverse and varied impacts of the law on movements seeking to achieve justice. In class discussions, in collaborative assignments, and in individual written projects, students will be asked think critically about whether the law ultimately results in justice both for individuals and society.  Students will spend the quarter working on a research and writing project contextualizing a legal case within its contemporary social movements.  This will be achieved through a proposal, multiple drafts and peer review in order to hone student’s writing skills. Finally students will present the findings of their research to the class.

Instructor: Jessica Todd Long - Juris Doctor, Rutgers University of Law at Camden, New Jersey
