Professors and firsthand survivors of ongoing global conflicts, including the Ugandan Civil war and natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina, presented at the second annual Disasters, Displacement and Human Rights Conference over the weekend at the University of Tennessee College of Law. The UT Beacon reports that topics discussed included responses to climate change and the forensics of mass graves in areas of warfare. “I’m delighted at the way the conference has expanded and how it not only includes colleagues and students at UT but also people from Kenya and Europe,” Rosalind Hackett, head of the Religious Studies Department, said.
