Book Talk: “Big Data, Health law, and Bioethics”

September 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In this timely and provocative book, Catharine A. MacKinnon argues that the right seemingly minor interventions in the legal realm can have a butterfly effect that generates major social and cultural transformations.

Butterfly Politics brings this incisive understanding of social causality to a wide-ranging exploration of gender relations. The…
