Law Review Symposium 2014- Legal Borders and Mental Disorders @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Nov 7 @ 7:30 am – 2:00 pm
Law Review Symposium 2014- Legal Borders and Mental Disorders @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-V) is developed and used by psychiatrists to determine whether someone should be diagnosed with a particular mental disorder. A great deal of debate surrounded the publication of the most recent version, in May 2013. Despite the manual’s explicit warnings against using it in forensic contexts, judges and attorneys continue to refer to it as the “psychiatric bible.” Significant legal rights and entitlements (including those related to criminal sentencing, health insurance, or disability benefits) hinge on whether someone’s mental illness is included within the DSM, and it has therefore become a very important, albeit imperfect, resource for the law. This symposium will investigate changes in the most recent version of the manual, and how these changes may impact someone’s legal rights. We will also discuss possible future revisions to the DSM.

This event will be streamed live online on the event webpage.

Following the screening, Professor George will present an overview of the human rights consequences of trafficking and the high costs to children when protections are not in place. She will provide a survey of how US legal reforms, global business initiatives, and consumer choices can eradicate the exploitation of children and contribute to change.
Professor George earned a BA with honors from the University of Chicago and a JD from Harvard Law School, where she served as articles editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, and holds an MA in international relations from the University of Chicago. She is a frequent speaker on issues related to women’s rights, human rights, and the rights and experiences of racial minorities.

Free Art Talk: “The Nature Theater of Christo and Jeanne-Claude” by Professor Jonathan Fineberg @ Kimball Art Center
Dec 4 @ 5:00 pm
Free Art Talk:  "The Nature Theater of Christo and Jeanne-Claude" by Professor Jonathan Fineberg @ Kimball Art Center

“The Nature Theater of Christo and Jeanne-Claude” by Professor Jonathan Fineberg, Visiting Distinguished Professor, UC-Irvine and Edward William and Jane Marr Gutgsell Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Professor Fineberg, who has followed the work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude closely for more than 35 years and written often about them, will offer some fresh thoughts about the way in which art affects politics, putting the work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude in a larger context of art that we think of as “political.” He will also draw on examples ranging from Chartres Cathedral to the performance practice of the contemporary artist Andrea Fraser. Previewing part of his forthcoming book “Modern Art at the Border of Mind and Brain”(University of Nebraska Press, August 2015), Fineberg will speculate on how a profoundly political and social art practice, like that of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, may affect our social thought and even the neural networks of the human brain. Admission is FREE but space is limited so please RSVP on our website www.kimballartcenter.org/art-talk or call 435-649-8882.

Jan 27 @ 6:00 pm
UCCD World Affairs Lecture: Jeff Greenwald - Thirteen Tips for the Accidental Ambassador @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Travel is now the world’s largest industry. How can the economic power of tourism help promote human rights and the environment? One solution is for travelers to “vote with their wings,” visiting countries with high scores in human rights, social welfare, and environmental protection. By following Jeff Greenwald’s 13 common-sense precepts on the road, travelers can become empowered to change the world.

Oakland-based writer and activist Jeff Greenwald is the executive director and cofounder of Ethical Traveler, a nonprofit organization dedicated to human rights and environmental protection. The author of six acclaimed travel books (including Shopping for Buddhas, now in its 25th Anniversary Edition), he also wrote and performs in a one-man show, Strange Travel Suggestions.

The Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series is presented by the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy in partnership with Westminster College.

All lectures are free and open to the public, and are held in the
Vieve Gore Concert Hall, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 E., Salt Lake City.
