2013 Critical Race Theory Conference

Following the success of the last critical race theory conference held at Yale in 2009, Yale Law School is proud to host the “Critical Race Theory: From the Academy to the Community” conference on Friday, February 8, 2013 and Saturday, February 9, 2013. The conference is sponsored by the Zelia & Oscar Ruebhausen and Debevoise & Plimpton Student Fund at Yale Law School, the Calhoun College Class of ’59 Fund, the American Studies Department, the Public Humanities Initiative, and La Casa Cultural at Yale College.

The conference will convene leading academic scholars, legal practitioners and community leaders to examine the ways in which critical race theory can be applied to scholarly work, legal practice, social justice advocacy and community based movements. Confirmed speakers include Devon Carbado, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Lani Guinier, Cheryl Harris, Tanya Hernandez, Charles Lawrence, and Gerald Torres.

In 2009, Yale Law School hosted a highly successful conference that explored the insights of critical race theory, as applied to immigration law. We look forward to continuing these conversations and exploring the role of CRT in other contexts at this February’s conference.
