Wednesday, May 4, 2022 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Samuel Moyn, Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale Law School and Professor of History; Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science
Samuel Moyn will discuss his new book “Humane: How the United States Abandoned Peace and Reinvented War”
Yale Law School and History Department Professor Samuel Moyn’s new book asks a troubling but urgent question: What if efforts to make war more ethical—-to ban torture and limit civilian casualties—-have only shored up the military enterprise and made it sturdier? Professor Moyn will be in discussion with Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science.
