Please join us for a discussion with Senator Chris Murphy on his recent book The Violence Inside Us: A Brief History of an Ongoing American Tragedy.
The Violence Inside Us
Is America destined to always be a violent nation? This sweeping history by U.S. Senator Chris Murphy explores the origins of our violent impulses, the roots of our obsession with firearms, and the mythologies that prevent us from confronting our national crisis.
The session will begin with a general discussion of the Kirby Simon Summer Human Rights Fellowship and its application process. This will include a discussion of summer internship opportunities at international human rights and criminal courts, which have complicated and sometimes early application processes; students interested in these internships should plan to attend.
