Lecture series examines global justice

By Paige Fieldsted

This Thursday, Tom Farer, dean of the Graduate School of International Studies at the University of Denver, will present his lecture, “Is the Idea of Just-War Quaint?” as part of the Dee Lecture Series.

The lecture series, organized by U philosophy professors Bruce Landesman and Deen Chatterjee, will cover various topics under the main theme “Global Justice: Poverty and War.”

Other topics include “Genocide and Humanitarian Intervention,” “Trade and Tolerance” and “The Responsibility to Protect Human Rights.”

“(The lecture series) provides opportunities for people to listen to experts on important political issues?these lectures are dealing with very current topics that you read about in the newspaper every day,” Landesman said.

The series began Jan. 25 and will continue until April 17 with weekly lectures beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Sutherland Moot Courtroom in the S.J. Quinney College of Law. The lectures are free and open to the public.

Leslie Francis, dean of the College of Humanities, said the lecture series is an opportunity that won’t happen again. “This is a truly extraordinary series,” she said.
