Forty years after the Supreme Court issued a decision in the case of Roe v. Wade, the abortion debate continues to divide the American public. Professors Lori Ringhand and Randy Beck from the School of Law will give brief presentations, followed by rounds of moderated conversation in the World Café format. Light refreshments will be served during the event.
This event is one in a series of three to be hosted by the Russell Library this October, all inspired by the ongoing exhibit "Now and Then: 1973" currently on display in the Russell Library Gallery. The series, titled “It Was a Big Year”, asks attendees to consider how a few key events in a single year can change the culture and course of a nation for years to come.
