Panel discussion serves as prelude for Sandel lecture

Posted on

In anticipation of the Fall Arts Celebration lecture by Michael Sandel, a faculty panel discussion will focus on political discourse.

“The Lost Art of Democratic Debate” will be held Thursday, September 15, from 4-5:15 p.m. in Kirkhof Center, room 2215. For more information, call the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at x12495.

Panel members are Charles Pazdernik, associate professor and chair of classics; John Uglietta, associate professor of philosophy; Kathleen Underwood, associate professor of history and director of women and gender studies; and Darren Walhof, associate professor of political science.

Sandel’s FAC lecture is set for September 22; the Harvard professor has argued that political discourse will be improved only if people learn to argue about moral convictions and principles of justice.
