Yale Law School - Sterling Law Building Room 122

Time of Event:

Thursday 12:10 PM

Please join the Yale Program in Law and Political Economy and YLS LPE Student Group for an in-person event October 6 at 12:10pm (RSVP req’d) with Professor Guy-Uriel Charles (Harvard Law School). Professor Charles will be discussing a work in progress, titled “Identity Crisis: Race (and Class) in the Twilight of the Civil Rights Consensus.”

Guy-Uriel E. Charles is the Charles J. Ogletree Jr. Professor of Law at Harvard Law School where he also directs the Charles Hamilton Institute for Race and Justice. He writes about how law mediates political power and how law addresses racial subordination. He is currently working on book, with Luis Fuentes-Rohwer, on the past and future of voting rights, under contract with Cambridge University Press, which argues that the race-based model that underlies the Voting Rights Act has run its course and that the best way to protect against racial discrimination in voting is through a universal, positive rights model of political participation.
