The law review and the Racial Justice Project at New York Law School are presenting a conference on Exploring Civil Society through the Writings of Dr. Seuss. It's Friday, March 1, 2013, 8:15 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
The keynote speaker will be Donald E. Pease, Professor of English and the Ted and Helen Geisel Third Century Professor in the Humanities at Dartmouth College. He's literally written the book on Seuss.
There will also be panels on:
- The Shared Interests in Society in Horton Hears a Who
- Personal Rights of Identity in The Sneetches and Yertle the Turtle
- The Nature of War in The Butter Battle Book
- Business and Society in The Lorax
And plans are being made for a Seuss-themed networking reception.
