Hosted by Professor Anthony Paul Farley, the James Campbell Matthews Distinguished Professor of Jurisprudence, presentation titles included: "Home is Where the Law is: a Humbug Reading of Wizard of Oz"; "History and Class Consciousness in Oz"; and "Feasts of Oz: Class, Food, and the Rise of Global Capitalism."
