A panel discussion on the modern meaning of justice is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall, as the kickoff to a yearlong series of events on "The Just Society" organized by the Pace Center.
Panelists are: Gary Bass, associate professor of politics and international affairs; Nannerl Keohane, the Laurance Rockefeller Distinguished Visiting Professor of Public Affairs and the University Center for Human Values and the former president of Duke University; James Mahon, visiting fellow in philosophy; and Elizabeth Bogan, senior lecturer in economics. The discussion will be moderated by Stanley Katz, lecturer with the rank of professor in public and international affairs.
The discussion will launch the Pace Center's Civic Awareness and Action Series, which will focus on the theme of "The Just Society." The series aims to encourage civic engagement and is designed to foster open discussions about the definition of justice by bringing together divergent concepts of social justice and individual responsibility.
