Exploring Civil Society through the Writings of Dr. Seuss™ examined aspects of civil society reflected in a selection of Dr. Seuss books, including tolerance, punishment, equality, civil and human rights, land use and property rights, and corporate responsibility, with the help of a cross-disciplinary group of scholars from law, humanities, and philosophy who are recognized leaders in these fields. Each of the panels addressed these topics as they relate to a specific Dr. Seuss title. The keynote address was given by Donald E. Pease, Professor of English and the Ted and Helen Geisel Third Century Professor in the Humanities at Dartmouth College and author of Theodor Seuss Geisel (Oxford University Press 2010).

Registration included continental breakfast, lunch, and a Seuss-themed wine and cheese reception following the program.  CLE credit was available.  Selected papers presented at the symposium will be published in a forthcoming issue of the New York Law School Law Review.

This event was co-sponsored by the Racial Justice Project at New York Law School and the New York Law School Law Review, and organized by Professor Richard Chused and Professor Tamara Belinfanti of New York Law School.
