Professor Angela Harris Lecture "The Occupy Wall Street Blues: Why Americans Have Trouble Talking about Inequality" - Jan 11th!

From the UC Law Center for Race, Gender and Social Justice:

We here at the Center wanted to remind you about Professor Angela Harris' visit to the College of Law, which is coming up in less than two weeks.  Professor Harris recently joined the law faculty at the UC Davis School of Law, after serving for more than 20 years on the law faculty at Boalt Hall (UC Berkeley).  

An influential and highly regarded scholar of law and critical race feminism, Professor Harris is this year's Chesley Distinguished Visiting Professor and will be teaching an upper-level short course during the week of January 9, 2012, called "Social Equality and the Law."  

As part of her visit, she will also present a public lecture on Wednesday, January 11 from 12:15-1:15pm, in room 114 at the College of Law, called "The Occupy Wall Street Blues: Why Americans Have Trouble Talking about Inequality" (for more info, go here).  

Professor Harris is an amazing speaker whose work over the years has consistently grappled with difficult and cutting edge issues involving intersectional (economic, gender, race, sex) equality.  We realize that this lecture is happening before the beginning of the spring semester, but If you're going to be  around, we hope you can make it to her public lecture on January 9.  

Hope to see you on January 9 -- and feel free to email us at if you have any questions and/or would like a reading list.  

All best,

Professors Houh, Kalsem, and Williams (Center co-directors)
Kamiikia Alexander (Class of 2012)
Anna Lammert (Class of 2012)
