Professor Jennifer Reynolds Presents Article at Ohio State University ADR Conference
On Nov. 9 and 10, 2012, Jennifer Reynolds presented her in-progress article regarding Nazi propaganda at the Sixth Annual Works-in-Progress Conference at Ohio State University Law School. The conference offers law scholars and professors the opportunity to meet and share their research with other scholars from around the country who are also researching and writing on the topic of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
Professor Reynolds’ article examines an exhibit in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum called “State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda,” which shows how the Nazis leadership manipulated public attitudes to be more sympathetic toward the Nazi cause. Instead of only promoting hatred, the Nazi used rhetoric of freedom and love of country that attracted many followers. Professor Reynolds’ in-progress article takes a look at the exhibit from the perspective of an ADR scholar who is interested in the relationship between persuasion and consent, as well as the effect of ADR on domestic and international disputes.
The commentator for Reynolds's paper was Professor Amy Cohen of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. Professor Cohen is widely regarded for her scholarship in domestic and transnational dispute resolution, economic and social development, and democratic governance.
