Event Description

In addition to this seminar, Susan McWilliams will be giving a lecture entitled “Reading the American Road Trip” on February 2. For more information on this seminar, please visit the event page.

 

Registration for the seminar is free and open to the public. However, because capacity is limited, advance enrollment is necessary. This will be done primarily on a first come, first served basis. Readings will be distributed in advance to participants, who will be expected to read them and participate actively in the discussion. A pizza lunch will be delivered at the end of the seminar. To enroll, please e-mail Professor Daniel Lowenstein at lowenstein@law.ucla.edu
