Equality and Dignity Under the Constitution: LGBT Rights and Beyond
The Supreme Court's gay and lesbian rights cases have prominently invoked the constitutional value of dignity. But "dignity" does not appear in the Constitution's text, and it remains an amorphous and controversial concept in constitutional law. Drawing on the gay/lesbian rights cases, as well as the Supreme Court's major cases on race and gender, Professor Sanders will discuss what makes dignity jurisprudence distinctive, and will explore both its promise and limitations for expanding constitutional equality at noon on Thursday, April 13, Maurer School of Law, Moot Court Room. Free and open to the public; lunch will be provided.

Storing Energy from the Sun
Energy from the sun comes in two forms, sunlight and wind energy. Modern society has been developed by harnassing the energy stored in fossil fuels and plants. Population growth has reached the point where its rate of consumption of energy is greater than the rate of generation of energy by plants, and fossil fuels are finite and have unsustainable hidden costs associated with their extraction and combustion. How can we emancipate modern society from its dependence on fossil fuels? Professor John B. Goodenough, University of Texas at Austin, Department of Mechanical Engineering, will present a seminar on April 17, 4:00-5:00 p.m., C033 Chemistry Building. A reception will follow from 5:30-6:30 p.m.in Simon 101.

Teaching Religion in Public
Understanding religion and religious difference has never been more important. It is sometimes said that teaching religion in a public university is and should be different from teaching religion at private institutions of higher learning. This lecture will explore the ways in which those differences have been misunderstood, particularly from a legal and constitutional standpoint, limiting our work. Sullivan will argue that those in the academic study of religion should focus more on the "forbidden" borderlands between what are sometimes termed people of faith and people not of faith, rather than policing the wall - with a view to better public understanding on Tuesday, March 24 at 2 PM in the Hoagy Carmichael Room, Morrison Hall.
