Join us for a discussion with co-authors Mark Tushnet (HLS) and Bojan Bugarič (University of Sheffield) and panelists Tom Ginsburg (University of Chicago), Lawrence Lessig (HLS), and Sanford V. Levinson (University of Texas) followed by an audience Q&A session.

Gutman Library Book Talk: Class Dismissed

4:00pm to 5:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Graduate School of Education—Online

Set during the “Ed Reform” wars of the 1990s, Class Dismissed offers a fresh lens on the urban teacher tale: an intimate view of teaching and learning, each classroom its own ecosystem, the eye of its own little storm. Seen through the warm and humorous eyes of Patrick Lynch, the crucible of inner-city education, with its stew of race, class and political tensions, provides a portrait of love and loss, a surprising path to self-discovery, and a belated coming-of-age.

Author and educator Kevin M. McIntosh will be in conversation with Dr. Karla Brooks Baehr, former...

Location: 

Harvard Law School—Online

In December 2020, first trimester abortion was legalized in Argentina with the passage of Law 27.610. This historic move presents an inflection point for Argentine democracy, as well as a case study in how rights concepts can be deployed effectively to advance reproductive justice.
