The Criminal Justice Department at UWinnipeg will be hosting the annual justice conference, May 7-9 2015. The event is organized in conjunction with the Centre for Interdisciplinary Justice Studies (cijs.ca). The theme is Visualizing Justice. This conference will provide scholars, artists, and activists a venue to examine visibility, visuality and justice. Visibility and visuality are ideal concepts for inter-disciplinary study as they draw attention from aesthetics, cultural studies and a variety of social sciences, from history to geography and criminal justice. The three-day event features multi-media presentations, research, exhibitions and performances on justice, visuality, and visibility.

Three featured speakers will present their ideas. First, renowned Winnipeg artist Diane Thorneycroft will speak about her recent work 7pm Thursday, May 7, University Club, 4th Floor Wesley Hall. Second, Professor Roderick Lindsay from Queen’s University will address the issue of police lineups and witnessing 1130am Friday, May 8, Room 2M70, 2nd Floor, Manitoba Hall. Third, Professor Michelle Brown from University of Tennessee will discuss visibility and the new civil rights movement across the USA 245pm Friday, May 8, Room 2M70, 2nd Floor, Manitoba Hall.
