We announced the upcoming November 7, 2008, conference to be held at American University, Washington College of Law: How Legal Rhetoric Shapes the Law. This year's theme is drawn from the language of violence and torture. Keynote speaker is Professor Peter Brooks, Sterling Professor of Comparative Literature at Yale University and Mellon Visiting Professor at Princeton University. Professor Brooks will speak on "The Ethics of Reading." The law school has issued a flyer providing more details about the conference, available at this link: Download confflyer08.doc.
