Café Conversations presents Dr. Haley Duschinski on Imagining International Justice” on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 5 p.m. at the Baker Center Front Room.

Community is a word that means something different in every language. Justice, however, is a word that carries the same meaning no matter the culture. Duschinski, Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology and the Director of the Center for Law, Justice and Culture, focuses her research on these two words.  She looks at how various local communities make claims for human rights and justice, and how these claims are shaped by social, political, and historical factors.

Duschinski, accompanied by students, has conducted research of diverse cultures from Northern Ireland to Cambodia, as well as performed extensive anthropological fieldwork in Kashmir, a conflict zone in India. During her café, she hopes that “the audience leaves with a better understanding of how anthropology can help us understand local perspectives on international human rights issues.”
