“The Role of the Humanities in Law, Ethics, and Justice”

Join us at the University Laughing Planet on February 14th at 5:30 pm for the next Thought on Tap. What is the role of the humanities in law, ethics, and justice? How do the humanities inform policies and public discourses on ethics and social justice? How might the humanities inform pedagogy and higher education? How should we respond when laws conflict with ethics or justice? Join us as we tackle these and other important questions. Light snacks will be provided. Grab a bite and beverage and join the conversation.

The discussion will be facilitated by:

Bretton Rodriguez, Lecturer of Core Humanities

and feature the following guests:


Chris Church, Associate Professor of History

Jim Webber, Associate Professor of English

Holly Scala, Associate Professor of Political Science
