Ethics in the Humanities Classroom Panel Discussion

Thu, Oct 19, 2017, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Location: 
301 Marx Hall

What makes a course count as EM (Ethical Thought and Moral Values) in the Princeton curriculum? And more broadly, how do ethical questions figure in humanities courses – in course design,  and in the classroom experience of reading, writing, seeing, hearing, and discussing?  A diverse range of panelists will open the discussion.  All faculty, postdocs, graduate students and others are welcome to attend. 

Panelist include:

Amy Borovoy, East Asian Studies

Peter Brooks, Comparative Literature and the University Center for Human Values

Esther Schor, English and the Council of the Humanities

Peter Singer, University Center for Human Values

Chaired by:

Melissa Lane, Politics and the University Center for Human Values and Rebecca Graves-Bayazitoglu, Director of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning

Cosponsored by the Council of the Humanities and the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning
