Judgment in a Post-Racial World

MONDAY NIGHT LECTURE SERIES | JUSTICE AND JUDGMENT
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25 | 6 p.m. | DANIEL FAMILY COMMONS | USDAN UNIVERSITY CENTER

PROFESSOR DAVID PALUMBO-LIU
Stanford University

There are many good reasons why we would want to “get past” race (forgiveness, generosity, a mutual granting of humanity). And bad ones (a crude sense of pragmatics, an unwillingness to deal with this “issue” any longer, impatience). My talk will delve into how these questions register both in specific national historical situations and also more broadly. Materials will include literary texts, autobiography, social theory, and historical cases and will engage deeply with issues of interpretation, judgment, and action.
