Dr. June Carbone: Divorce is Changing the Face of Its Families. This coming SATURDAY, AUG 27, 7pm at PERKINS.  

This looks like a great topic.  WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE HER AT THE SKEPTICS. I have heard some very good reviews about her talks at different venues from some of our members..

>>>The subject matter helped her and her husband, William Black, who also teaches law at UMKC, win a guess-the-electoral-votes office pool. This is an interesting article on Dr. June Carbone:  http://www.pitch.com/plog/archives/2010/03/22/june-carbone-umkc-prof-examines-the-blue-red-divide

"RedFamilies v. Blue Families: Legal Polarization and the Creation of Culture"
SIOUX COUNTY, Iowa — In the 1970s, the divorce rate was so low in this rural northwest Iowa County that it resembled the rest of America in the 1910s. Most of its 28,000 residents were churchgoers, few of its women were in the work force, and divorce was simply not done.
“I think women were very miserable for very many years, and that’s changing,” she said. “Things are not so black and white. There are so many gray areas.”
June Carbone is the Edward A. Smith/Missouri Chair of Law, the Constitution and Society at the University of Missouri at Kansas City. She previously served as Associate Dean for Professional Development and Presidential Professor of Ethics and the Common Good at Santa Clara University School of Law. She received her J.D. from the Yale Law School, and her A.B. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.   http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/carbone.htm
