- Progress Workshop Schedule (last modified: 27 March 2015)
The Social Justice Seminar Series is the result of collaboration between political philosophers at Durham and Newcastle universities. Throughout the Michaelmas (first) term of 2015-16 the seminar series will take place on alternate weeks in Newcastle and Durham, on Mondays between 2.30-4pm.
The purpose of the group is to provide researchers at both institutions with a community of scholars with whom to discuss and develop their working papers. The aim is for the group discussions to inspire better research and create a hub for advancing political philosophy in the North East. The theme ‘social justice’ is interpreted so as to include both the evaluation of current social arrangements and the exploration of alternative arrangements. Thus the aim is to facilitate discussions that are both critical and constructive. The long-term aim is to facilitate the development of a North Eastern Political Philosophy Research Network. Regular discussions at Durham and Newcastle on questions of social justice are the first step in creating this network. It is hoped that these discussions will provide a forum for the development of additional events, research activities and collaborative projects.
