Prof. Anna Su, “Exporting Freedom,” Monday, Feb. 1, 12:00 - 1:00, Wolf Law 206, has been postponed due to weather. The talk will be rescheduled later this term.
Dr. Anna Su will give a talk tiitled "Exporting Freedom: Religious Liberty and American Power," Co-hosted by CU Political Science Department's Keller Center for the Study of the First Amendment and The CU Law School's Bryon White Center for Constitutional Law. The talk is on Monday, February 1st at 12:00-1:00pm in Wolf Law, Room 206.
Dr. Su will discuss her recent book, Exporting Freedom, which charts the rise of religious freedom as an ideal firmly enshrined in international law and shows how America’s promotion of the cause of individuals worldwide to freely practice their faith advanced its ascent as a global power.
In examining the evolution of religious freedom from an expression of the civilizing impulse to the democratization of states and, finally, through the promotion of human rights, Su offers a new understanding of the significance of religion in international relations.
Dr. Su's primary areas of research include the law and history of international human rights law, U.S. constitutional law (First Amendment), and law and religion. Her research has appeared in the Vanderbilt Law Review, the International Journal of Constitutional Law and the Journal of the History of International Law.
