From Jenna Weissman Joselit, GWU Judaic Studies:
In conjunction with The Merchant of Venice production and class that I'm team-teaching with Leslie Jacobson in TRDA, the law school will be holding a conversation next Monday, November 14th, at 3 p.m. in the Burns Faculty Conference Center (B505) of the law school, between Dean Paul Schiff Berman and Barry Edelstein of New York's Public Theater on the legal implications of the play.  The conversation will be moderated by The New Republic's legal affairs editor and GW law professor, Jeffrey Rosen.  It promises to be quite a lively occasion.
