Thursday, November 19, 2015 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM in Burke Mountain Room (LAC 400)

VSC Faculty Fellow, Janet Bennion, presents her analysis of the effect of legalizing polygamy in ¬†North America. Her findings are the result of collaboration with international scholars from the Non-Monogamy conference in Lisbon, Portugal, the Marriages of the West conference in Florence, Italy, and the Brandeis University conference on Polygamy and Polyamory. Her remarks are excerpted from The Polygamy Question, pending publication in November 2015. Local lawyer David Sleigh and District Court judge Walt Morris will provide a critique of Bennion’s analysis.
