NYU Critical Intersections: The Law, Rights, and Identities, a Conversation with Law Professor Kenji Yoshino
Join NYU Law Professor Kenji Yoshino to critically examine the intersections of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and law. The conversation will be moderated by SVP, Global Inclusion and Strategic Innovation, Dr. Lisa M. Coleman.
The NYU Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation (OGI) invites you to join us on July 23 from 12:00–1:30 p.m. for a conversation with Professor Kenji Yoshino — Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at NYU School of Law and the Director of the Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging — to critically examine the intersections of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and law. The conversation will be led by SVP, Global Inclusion and Strategic Innovation, Dr. Lisa M. Coleman.
An NYU BeTogether event, the discussion will focus on Professor Yoshino’s highly acclaimed Covering: The Hidden Assault On Our Civil Rights, a memoir that interweaves legal analysis with his personal journey as a gay, Japanese American professor of law to critically examine intersectional relationships of power and identity. Covering is featured in the NYU Summer Reads series — a selection of three shared readings for reflection, discourse, and engagement toward advancing equity and social justice at NYU, as part of the action initiatives announced by President Hamilton and the NYU Board of Trustees.
