Event Details

Join us at UIS for a talk from UIS professor Dr. Jason Pierceson and a discussion on Jamal Greene’s How Rights Went Wrong. This thought-provoking book looks at the tensions inherent in our society when it comes to individual rights, asks us to rethink the relationship between constitutional law and political dysfunction, and shows how we can recover America’s original vision of rights, while updating them to confront the challenges of the twenty-first century.
