A Boy, a Cat, and the Power of Stories
Thinking about the power of narrative and client counseling, problem solving, case planning, or ethics? Texas Wesleyan University School of Law is co-sponsoring a conference on The Power of Stories: Intersections of Law, Culture, and Literature, that will be held in Gloucester, England, July 24-26, 2005. The conference celebrates the 400th anniversary of the story of Dick Whittington and His Cat.
Among the scheduled topics:
"Did Richard Whittington Even Own a Cat?: The Ethics of Telling Stories to Unwitting Clients”—Steven Johansen, Lewis and Clark Law School
“The Dick Whittington Story: Theories of Poor Relief, Social Ambition, and Possibilities for Class Transformation”—Helen Hershkoff, New York Univ. School of Law
“Stop Stepping on My Story!: Using Character-and Conflict-Framing to Prevent Cross-Cultural Missteps and Misunderstandings”—Brian Foley, Florida Coastal School of Law
“Summoning Calliope as the New Muse of Legal Storytelling: Writing about Our Clients as Heroes”—Ruth Anne Robbins, Univ. of Rutgers School of Law-Camden
Among the social events are historic walks and a joust (presumably between re-enactors, not law professors).You can get more information about the conference at the Glouster conference website.
