Join the Graduate Student Working Group on Conceptualizing Justice for our first meeting of the year!
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
Breedlove Room, Perkins Library
Light refreshments will be served.
Join us as we launch this year’s series on Conceptualizing Justice. Graduate students and faculty from a variety of disciplines will gather to discuss, contemplate, and collaborate to make a contribution to the global discourse on justice. This year, in addition to invited speakers, we will be reading two texts:
Amartya Sen: The Idea of Justice
We will be passing out limited copies of these books to those graduate students committed to participating in a biweekly discussion over the course of the academic year.
The Working Group aims to create a venue for engaging Duke and the broader community in a dialogue on concepts of justice. We are interested in understanding how justice is conceptualized, articulated, and experienced in communities around the world, from local to global scales. By bringing together students and faculty from a variety of disciplines, we hope to enrich our understanding of justice and to contribute to a vibrant discourse on the role that justice plays in our work.
The Working Group is sponsored by the Duke University Center for International Studies.
