Jenn at IASH, take 2

a make-up from the snow day:

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018, 12:00 pm, IASH Conference Room (LN 1106)
IASH Fellows' Speaker Jenn Dum (Philosophy) presents: “Educational Justice and Relational Goods.
“This presentation will argue that relational educational goods are a function of the social aims of education, the internal educational process itself, and the structural position of education. Furthermore, such relational educational goods—for example, the ability to empathize—are goods realized within relations, and thus are not something that can or should be distributed on comparative terms. Educational justice, accordingly, needs to account not only for the comparative goods of distributive justice, but also for relational goods.”
