This semester, Oxford students are reading Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy and have the opportunity to hear him speak along with Anthony Ray Hinton, whom Stevenson helped to exhonerate. My Shakespeare students are thus reading Shakespeare through the lens of law and examining aesthetic represenations of justice. Dr. Daniel LaChance will visit our class to discuss legal personhood and Rachel Chmiel to talk about her eighteen years’ experience representing people on Georgia’s death row. I’m also excited to be mentoring Katie Pleiss as an Oxford Research Scholar, studying the death penalty, mass incarceration, and criminal justice reform. We are planning a road trip to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, AL.
