The International Bar Association Foundation, Sandra Day O’Connor Institute and the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU will host a free, public, non-partisan conversation on Constitution Day about the benefits, responsibilities and economic significance of preserving the rule of law and the principles it embodies on Constitution Day.

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor stated that: “Commitment to the rule of law provides a basic assurance that people can know what to expect whether what they do is popular or unpopular at the time.”

As the first of a series of town halls to be held across the country, a respected collection of legal minds and national figures will come together in an open forum to candidly talk about the meaning and importance of the rule of law.

Featuring our distinguished guest panel:

Nicole Carroll, editor-in-chief, USA Today

Jon Kyl, U.S. Senator from Arizona (1995-2013, 2018)

Myles Lynk, professor emeritus, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University

Ruth McGregor, chief justice, Arizona Supreme Court (ret.) and O’Connor Supreme Court Clerk

Homer Moyer (moderator), past chair, International Bar Association Rule of Law Forum

 

Complimentary admission and parking.

We live in a death-denying culture. We fear the unknown and what could be more unknown than what exists beyond our living reality? So, we have created mythology around it, fabricated a number of stories to help us cope, but in daily life, we typically ignore it. However, times are changing, and there is a growing need to come to terms with our own mortality.

Artists historically are the cultural disseminators, particularly of difficult to digest ideas, and the subject of death is not new. One simply need to look to the 17th century vanitas paintings, or the Victorian post-mortem photography to find historic examples. While the western philosophy around death has been buried into social obscurity, the prevalence of serious contemporary artwork about death has been expanding. Memento Mori will showcase a collection of photographic images from historic and contemporary artists, each approaching the theme of death in their own unique way, spanning from literal to symbolic, from deeply personal to abstract cultural interpretations.

In many respects, Vine Deloria Jr (1933-2005) has become a historical figure, alongside such luminaries as Charles Eastman, D’Arcy McNickle, Jack Forbes, and Beatrice Medicine, whose writings have been canonized in American Indian/Native American studies, but which have acquired the patina of bygone eras. Consequently, it’s easy to overlook the influence that their ideas and opinions are having on the current discussion regarding Indian affairs. Deloria, in particular, stands out among his peers for having almost singlehandedly defined the discourse on federal Indian law and policy, tribal self-determination, and decolonization. "Life of the Indigenous Mind: Vine Deloria Jr and the Birth of the Red Power Movement" (2019) is an intellectual history of Deloria’s critical role in the debate over Indian rights, which was instigated by the clash of federal termination policy, treaty rights, and the shattering of white American hegemony during the struggle for Civil Rights and the Vietnam War. Out of this social upheaval emerged a resilient notion of Indigenous nationhood that is still serving as the backbone to contemporary Indigenous sovereignty.

David Martínez (Akimel O’odham/Hia Ced O’odham/Mexican) is an associate professor of American Indian Studies and the author of "Dakota Philosopher: Charles Eastman and American Indian Thought" (Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2009), editor of "The American Indian Intellectual Tradition: An Anthology of Writings from 1772 to 1972" (Cornell University Press, 2011), and author of "Life of the Indigenous Mind: Vine Deloria Jr and the Birth of the Red Power Movement" (University of Nebraska Press, 2019). He has also published articles in the American Indian Quarterly, the American Indian Culture and Research Journal, Studies in American Indian Literatures, and Journal of the Southwest.
