Daniel Philpott, associate professor of political science and peace studies at the Kroc Institute for Peace Studies at University of Notre Dame, will be visiting campus for his lecture “Reconciliation in Politics? On the Meaning of Justice in the Wake of Massive Injustice” on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in Reith Recital Hall as a guest of the Yoder Public Affairs Lecture Series. The event is free and open to the public.
Philpott will be visiting Joe Liechty’s Reconciliation course on Tuesday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. to discuss his book “Just and Unjust Peace: An Ethic of Reconciliation,” which the class has been studying since the start of the semester. Students who are interested are invited to join the conversation in Wyse 319. Be advised, however, to read the introduction to Just and Unjust Peace or one of Philpott’s many other publications.
Philpott’s credentials in peace studies begin with a doctorate from Harvard University in 1996. He has since published many works in The American Political Science Review and The Journal of Democracy, in addition to working with the research team on religion and reconciliation at the Kroc Institution at Notre Dame.
