Democracy and Human Values Project

    The University Center for Human Values and Department of Politics invites you to join us for a Democracy and Human Values Project workshop on:

    Connections between Moral and Political Philosophy

    Friday, May 7th (9:30am – 5:00pm)
    Saturday, May 8th (9:30am – 12:00pm)
    Marx Hall, Rm. 301

    The workshop will be a highly interdisciplinary meeting, with participants from history, law, philosophy, and politics. Please note that this will be a small workshop, and the idea is that those who participate will attend all three days.
