"Conceptualizing Justice" Symposium

January 20, 2011 • 3:30 PM • Perkins Library Breedlove Room

Speakers: Profs. David Brady (Sociology), George Christie (Law), Michael Gillespie (Political Science), and Stanley Hauerwas (Divinity)

What is justice? Who determines what justice is and who has access to it? Can concepts of justice cross disciplinary lines? We are launching the Duke Graduate Student Working Group on Conceptualizing Justice with a series of speakers during the Spring 2011 semester, beginning with a panel that brings together scholars from a number of disciplines at Duke in order to answer broad questions about the nature and evolution of the concept of justice. Our aim is to stimulate discussion on the ways in which various disciplines and scholars encounter or engage with concepts of justice, whether explicitly or implicitly, in their work. This event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
