The Politics of Dignity

Oct 9 2017
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Hesburgh Center Auditorium
100 Hesburgh Center
Notre Dame, IN



Dignitarian ethics and discourses are common in ethical, moral and development conversations, but whose dignity is being discussed? Why do we invoke dignity in human rights and sexuality, politics and personal practices? What should we be suspicious of in dignitarian debates, and which aspects of dignity discourses are worth embracing? Join us for a moderated panel discussion on the power dynamics that shape the concept of human dignity.

This event is free and open to the public and is presented by Contending Modernities and The Center for Civil and Human Rights.
