Dr. Carolyn Pinedo-Turnovsky has collaborated with the Henry Art Gallery on The Bugs & Beasts Before the Law Colloquium, which imagines and explores possibilities for survival and liberation for those whose protections are limited or whose personhood is compromised, oppressed, or threatened within sociolegal systems. Leveraging the power of art to reframe what is familiar by engaging multiple disciplinary perspectives, University of Washington faculty and graduate student discussants, as well as invited guest scholars and artists, will interrogate how the question of which bodies have equal protections and rights under the law continues to be contested, but has the possibility to be reimagined through the creative tools shared by scholarly, artistic, and pedagogic praxis.  Learn more here.
