Professor Addie Rolnick to Present at UCLA Critical Race Studies' 6th Annual Symposium


Addie Rolnick is an associate professor of law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Rolnick will attend the 2014 UCLA Critical Race Studies' 6th Annual Symposium - Whiteness as Property: A Twenty-Year Appraisal from Oct. 2 to 4.

She will present a talk titled, "Whiteness as Property and the Significance of Inter-Racial Histories."

This year, the symposium will be centered on Cheryl Harris' seminal article, Whiteness as Property. The conference will reflect on the political, legal, and intellectual context out of which the article emerged, its impact across academic disciplines, and its relevance for a range of civil rights debates.

Professor Rolnick's scholarship focuses on bridging gaps between civil rights, Critical Race Theory, federal Indian law, and indigenous rights.
