University Distinguished Professor Sarah Deer, J.D., will present her Distinguished Professor inaugural lecture “What if Survivors Wrote the Laws?  An Exploration of Tribal Statutes on Sexual Violence,” at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, March 4, 2024, in the Malott Room at the KU Memorial Union. The lecture is free and open to the public. 

Professor Deer will share the results of her forthcoming publication based on a comprehensive review of Tribal Nations’ sexual assault statutes. The lecture will illuminate potential frameworks for addressing sexual assault in Tribal courts in the 21st century by employing indigenous feminist legal theories about consent and sexual autonomy.
