LAW 520/5220 - Justice: Histories and Theories (3 cr.)



Description
This course introduces students to justice as a problem in contemporary cultural, legal and philosophical debates. The course explores the different domains through which justice becomes a universal language of rights, and the resultant compartmentalization of human experiences along parameters in which culture is presumed to be non-existent, rendering different forms of justice, such as gender justice, appendixes to the already known. This course will engage with questions of distribution of justice - economic, social, political, historical- in the contemporary world with special focus on locating theories of justice in the practice thereof. It is conceived as laying the intellectual foundation for the GWST gender and justice graduate concentration, for graduate work in IHRLand other related fields. This is a joint course offered by the Institute for Gender and Women’s Studies and the Department of Law.
