PROF. CARRIE MENKEL-MEADOW TO GIVE LECTURE
MARCH 6, 5 PM On Thursday, March 6 at 5 p.m. Professor Carrie Menkel-Meadow will give a lecture in the courtroom (Room 112) entitled “Correspondences and Contradictions in International and Domestic Conflict Resolution: Lessons from General Theory and Varied Contexts.” This talk will examine similarities and differences between how the subjects of dispute resolution and conflict theory are handled domestically in the U.S. and how they are treated internationally. Professor Menkel-Meadow will argue that while each field can learn from the other, errors of analysis are also made when we change contexts and levels of analysis without adequate recognition of the importance of some of these differences. She is a professor at Georgetown University Law Center and Director of the Georgetown Hewlett Fellowship Program in Conflict Resolution and Problem-Solving. She is one of the world’s foremost dispute resolution experts, has won numerous awards for her writing, and is widely-regarded as a terrific lecturer. The lecture is free and will be followed by a reception in Room 204.
