September 28-29, 2012
Join the Oregon Law and greater legal communities during a symposium dedicated to Professor Svitlana Kravchenko, who passed away in February 2012. The symposium will welcome speakers from throughout the United States and around the world, speaking to the importance of human rights and the environment – helping lawyers, legal scholars, and law students to move forward with new ways of thinking, something for which Dr. Kravchenko was incredibly passionate.
War & Memory: Bearing witness to loss in everyday life
October 19-20, 2012
Addressing political violence, state terror, exceptionalism, and the traumatic effects of war are the focus of this vibrant interdisciplinary symposium. Building on its history in Nuremberg, the field of international criminal law has been reinvigorated by an increased focus on accountability and punishment for the perpetrators of “crimes of hate/crimes of state.”
The stage has been set. Truth commissions can represent a political opportunity for underrepresented, oppressed, and discriminated sectors of a society to make their grievances heard and provide a vehicle for emerging democracies to redress past harms, claim reparations, and construct a lasting peace within their borders (countries?).
Keynote speaker: Arturo Arias, University of Texas, Department of Spanish and Portuguese
