Kerri Stone, associate professor at Florida International University College of Law, recently presented at the “Bullying: Redefining Boundaries, Responsibility, and Harm Symposium.” The symposium, sponsored by the Temple Political & Civil Rights Law Review, was held on Feb. 23, 2013, at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law in Philadelphia.
Over twenty leading scholars and advocates addressed the phenomenon of bullying in a variety of different venues, including K-12 education, higher education, the workplace, and senior living environments. The symposium featured a keynote address by Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate, and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy (Random House 2013).
