ANTH 1918: Justice?

3 CreditsFreshman SeminarGlobal Perspectives

What is justice, and how do we know it? Where does it begin and end? And, who gets to decide? Is justice a stable concept that can be applied universally, or a socially constructed (and therefore unstable) category that should only be approached in contextually specific ways? This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to the concept of justice. Students will be exposed to a variety of texts - in philosophy, political science and economy, religion, anthropology, literature and law – and contexts from which conceptions of justice have emerged and/or been challenged. As the title of this course, suggests, students will not merely be tracing the history and development of \"justice,\" but also identifying and interrogating its conceptual limits.
