Event Description:
The series, Conflicting Conceptions of Justice in the 1970s, will include artists, activists and scholars who will share their views in lectures and discussion throughout the winter and spring of 2013. Each lecture will comprise a presentation of approximately 45 minutes followed by 45 minutes of Q&A with the audience. The presentations are as stimulating as they are informative, while the discussion segments engage the audience actively and provide an opportunity for the speakers to expound on their ideas.
