Dr. Seuss and the Law

April is National Poetry Month, but it was March 1 that New York Law School held a  symposium on  one of the most widely-read American poets: Exploring Civil Society Through the Writings of Dr. SeussTM. (Really, now, which do you know better, "The Raven" or Green Eggs and Ham?)

The symposium's program is here. You can see the titles of the panels (e.g., "The Shared Interests in Society in Horton Hears a Who") and which professors were on them. Curious about what they said? Click the links to see YouTube videos of each panel.

Peter Nicolas
Who's that talking about "The Sneetches as an Allegory for the Gay Rights Struggle: Three Prisms"? It's Prof. Peter Nicolas! His paper is here. You can also read about it in this blog post from the Washington Post.
