Location: Barone Campus Center Dogwood Room

Ethics Here and Now: Racial Justice, Reproductive Justice, Climate Justice is a day-long ethics symposium designed to identify and amplify the calls to justice embedded within scholarly and activist approaches to climate change, reproductive politics, and racial injustice. It aims to both further scholarly research on the interstices of this complex web of inter-related concerns and to assist in building the solidarity necessary to address them by bringing together a diverse, interdisciplinary collection of scholars, students, and community activists. In this, the symposium advances integration of Fairfield’s core curriculum, and illuminates the connection between theory and practice that is necessary for effective ethical leadership.

The symposium’s panels are designed to highlight both global issues and local expressions of those issues, and will include participation from faculty, students, and members of the community, as well as a collection of invited scholars engaged in groundbreaking work on the intersection of these issues. Participants will walk away with a keener sense of the connections betweenthe most pressing ethical problems of our day, and a deeper understanding of the modes of conceptual and practical cooperation necessary to address them.
