UCI Humanities Gateway 1070, McCormick Screening Room

This dialogue series sponsored by the Center for Biotechnology & Global Health Policy examines the intersections of law, race, society, and mental health through the use of dialogue and documentary.

The series provides a forum for thinking about the emotional, psychological, and mental health dimensions of social violence and discrimination, examining legal cases as a platform for the discussions. The series is moderated by Professor Michele Goodwin, Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Professor of Public Health and Gender & Women's Studies.

This event, sponsored by the UCI Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies, will shine a light on the ongoing LGBT civil rights struggle. After the film screening, Renata Hill and Terrain Dandridge, two of the defendants in the case, will participate in a Q & A session.

Additional co-sponsors: The Program in African American Studies; Departments of Asian American Studies, Chicano/Latino Studies, Criminology, Law & Society, and Film & Media Studies; Black Law Student Alliance; Cross-Cultural Center; LGBT Resource Center; OutLaw; Center in Law, Society, and Culture; Humanities Commons; Illuminations, the Chancellor’s UCI Arts and Culture Initiative; Campus Assault Resources & Education; Women & Gender Education Initiatives.
