You are invited to attend a Carleton University Community Event
Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of the Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs.
The event takes place monthly, September through April.
About the Editors: Sheryl N. Hamilton, Diana Majury, Dawn Moore, Neil Sargent and Christiane Wilke are faculty members in the Carleton University Department of Law and Legal Studies.
About the Book: Sensing Law is a collection bringing together fifteen authors from three countries and eight disciplines to examine how law and the senses collide in interesting and provocative ways. Topics range from the ways in which forensic nurses administer “rape kits” with multiple senses, to how First Nations activists are mobilizing “sniff brigades” to fight industrial pollution, to how sound is visualized in cases alleging unconscious copying of copyrighted songs.
