ClassCrits Events


ClassCrits is pleased to announce an upcoming online discussion session, co-sponsored with 
APPEAL (Assoc. for the Promotion of Political Economy & the Law).  All are welcome.
Register to get zoom link and readings. 


Constitutionalism, Neoliberalism, and Economic Justice, with Professor Julie A. Nice.

Friday January 28, 2022, at 4pm ET (UTC-5) via zoom.  

This paper maps the emerging scholarship regarding constitutionalism and economic justice within the United States. Scholars with diverse expertise ranging from economics and political economy to US constitutional law, US legal history, US poverty law, and comparative social and economic rights are turning increased attention to the relationship between constitutionalism and economic justice. This paper particularly considers the role of poverty law (or the absence thereof) within this discourse. 

Book Discussion with Ezra Rosser, Thursday February 10th at 5PM ET (UTC-5)
via zoom.

Join us for a book discussion with Ezra Rosser, author of  A Nation Within: Navajo Land and Economic Development (with Angela Riley, Robert Williams, and Lucy Jewel).

Stay tuned for more ClassCrits events! 



Seeking Ideas:
Do you have an idea for a panel or roundtable discussion that you would like to bring to fruition?  In a time where Covid-19 has canceled many academic conferences and opportunities for scholarly engagement, we invite our members to propose events that fit the ClassCrits mission of analyzing the layered connections between inequality and economics, law, race & gender hierarchies, and other systems of privilege.   


We are looking to sponsor or host events that could include panel discussions, roundtable discussions, paper workshops, or informal gatherings that connect to our mission and theme. Potential topics could include (but not be limited to) discussions of Covid-19 and class inequality, changing currents in law school pedagogy, the attacks on Critical Race Theory, and other topics.   


Please share your idea (rough outline of your idea and suggested timetable) to and our programming subcommittee will get back to you on logistics and further details.  Thank you!
