Fireside Chat: Gerrymandering—What Is It, How Can We Measure It, and What Can We Do About It?

Jan 18 2022, 7:30pm CST

Gerrymandering refers to the practice of drawing legislative districts so that one political party wins a disproportionate number of seats relative to their share of the electorate. But how can we tell whether or not districts have been drawn fairly? This is a legal question and, increasingly, a mathematical one. Jeanne Nielsen Clelland '91, A.M. '93, Ph.D. '96 will give us a gentle introduction to some new ideas about how to measure gerrymandering, and also discuss some ways that these ideas are being applied to current redistricting efforts.

Duke Law Livestream: Litigating Immigration Policy with Professor Kate Evans

Jan 20 2022, 12:00pm EST

Courts have become increasingly involved in overseeing the immigration policies announced by the President and his agencies. The result has been a dizzying array of on again, off again directives that raise fundamental questions about the obligations of the President as immigration prosecutor, the scope of his discretionary power, and the race to the courthouse in search of a sword or a shield.

'Persepolis' Book Discussion

Jan 20 2022, 7:00pm EST

Join us for a discussion of "Perspolis," Marjane Satrapi's graphic memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution, and in Volume 2, the story of her teen years in Vienna. Also made into an animated movie, the novel paints a portrait of daily life in Iran in both home and public life.

Book Club Discussion of "Caste" by Isabel Wilkerson With Duke Professor Patrick Smith

Feb 01 2022, 6:30pm EST

The Kenan Institute for Ethics established the Ethics Book Clubs for Alumni to foster community, to provide a space for alumni to read and discuss recently published novels, and to encourage readers to engage with ethical issues and questions found within these works. The Kenan Institute firmly believes that ethics matters everywhere, and literature (particularly novels) are excellent resources for imagining the ways in which ethics constitutes the world as it is now—and as we desire it to be.
