Laura Spitz: The Law and the Human

"The stakes are high, especially for those, like the Indigenous Peoples of North America, whose bodies and cultures have been both humanized and dehumanized through law."

Learn about how the law plays a role in the social construction of what it means to be human in this College of Arts and Sciences podcast by Laura Spitz, Cornell University vice provost for international affairs, and associate dean for international affairs at Cornell Law School.

This podcast and more from the Arts and Sciences "What Makes Us Human" series are available on iTunes and Soundcloud.
