International Human Rights Conference: "Walls: What They Make and What They Break" February 25-26, 2010

The Texas International Law Journal and the Rapoport Center are hosting an up-coming conference that will result in the journal's annual symposium issue. 

Entitled "Walls: What They Make and What They Break," the event will convene an interdisciplinary group of scholars from India, Israel, various parts of Europe and the United States who have researched the recent history of walls—made, unmade, in the making—and their consequences on the geographies of nation states and their neighbors, of communities both domestic and international, virtual and everyday. The conference is designed to build on the work of the Rapoport Center's Border Wall Working Group, http://www.utexas.edu/law/academics/centers/humanrights/borderwall/, and its investigation into the human rights impact of the US-Mexico border wall.

Wendy Brown, Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley, will deliver the keynote address on Thursday, February 25. The conference will continue throughout the day on Friday. 

All events will be held in the Eidman Courtroom of the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. The schedule is pasted at the bottom of this email.

This event is co-sponsored by:

The Humanities Institute, http://www.humanitiesinstitute.utexas.edu
South Asia Institute, http://www.utexas.edu/cola/insts/southasia/?path%5B0%5D=southasia
Center for Middle Eastern Studies, http://www.utexas.edu/cola/depts/mes/center/cmes.php
Department of Middle Eastern Studies, http://www.utexas.edu/cola/depts/mes
Teresa Lozano Long Institute for Latin American Studies http://www.utexas.edu/cola/insts/llilas

You can learn more about the participants and register by visiting the conference website. This event is free and open to the public.  Because space is limited at parts of the conference (especially the Friday lunch), we would appreciate your registration as soon as possible. http://www.utexas.edu/law/conferences/walls

We hope that you will be able to join us for what we are sure will be an exciting and thought-provoking event!
