Kader chairs panel at Renaissance conference


April 01, 2013

Professor David Kader recently served as a panel moderator at the 19th Annual Conference of the Arizona Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies, one of the premier centers of its kind in the country.

The conference, Beasts, Humans, and Transhumans in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, was held Feb. 14-16 at the Renaissance Hotel in Phoenix.

Kader chaired the panel on “16th Century Images of Beasts and Monsters,” where presentations were made on Animal Imagery in Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s “Seven Deadly Sins” to Graphic Influence in the Design and Meaning of “Les Songes Drolatiques de Prantagruel.”

Kader is a faculty affiliate with the Center, and has taught a course on Shakespeare and the law in the Center’s study abroad program at St. Catherine’s College, Cambridge University, England, as well as offering the same course at the College of Law. That course, The Merchant of Justice: Shakespeare and the Law of Elizabethan England, also inspired a book he co-edited with Michael Stanford, titled Poetry of the Law: From Chaucer to the Present (Iowa, 2010).

Kader teaches in the areas of criminal procedure, torts, state constitutional law and religion and the Constitution. He recently taught a summer course on Religion & Government at the Center for Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Studies at Sarajevo University in Bosnia/Herzogovina, as well as visiting Turkey as part of an Arizona delegation under the auspices of the Foundation for Inter-Cultural Dialogue.
