  • Feb 12 Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy 2019 Symposium - Immigration, Adoption, and Our National Identity 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    In the 21st century, family creation often involves many more stakeholders than the nuclear family. Particularly in the area of International Child Adoption (ICA), family creation is a cross-border enterprise that implicates local, national, and global politics and conflicts. In his latest article, published in our Spring 2019 issue, Shani King traces the strengths and infirmities of past and present ICA frameworks and the different national goals embodied in each, and posits that ICA and immigration law should not be thought of as discrete issues, but indeed as two sides of the same coin, embodying the same national stressors and overarching goals. Dean Kerry Abrams and Prof. Kathryn Bradley will analyze King's article using their own expertise in immigration law, family creation law, and children's rights and invite discussion on the creation of a compassionate ICA framework that supports the rights of the child in an increasingly globalized world.

  • Feb 13 Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy 2019 Symposium - Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    From the very beginning of the epidemic, AIDS was linked to punishment. Calls to punish people living with HIV - mostly stigmatized minorities - began before doctors had even settled on a name for the disease. Punishing Disease looks at how HIV was transformed from sickness to badness under the criminal law and investigates the consequences of inflicting penalties on people living with disease. Trevor Hoppe's new book explores these questions and the further implications of the police power used against diseases like hepatitis and meningitis. Along with Allison Rice from Duke's HIV/AIDS Policy Clinic, who was instrumental in changing North Carolina's HIV criminalization laws, and Robert Suttle from the Sero Project, we will discuss the dangers of punitive and coercive responses to illness in our society and how to design a system that respects the individual while fighting the disease.
