Liberty and Justice in the Contemporary World

The preparation and teaching of an undergraduate course in liberty and justice in the contemporary world.

Saint Anselm College proposes to develop a course entitled "Liberty and Justice in the Contemporary World." Our proposal is developed through Saint Anselm's Learning Liberty Initiative, which joins concern for civic and political life with our liberal arts mission. "Liberty and Justice in the Contemporary World" will be offered as an upper-level elective in the College's Humanities program, and will be taught by a team of faculty from five different departments. Our course examines four enduring questions of human nature, liberty, and justice by drawing on seminal texts in the Western intellectual tradition. We seek funding to: a) facilitate faculty discussion and planning of the course's reading list, themes, questions, and pedagogy; b) provide faculty release time for the initial running of the course; and c) fund community-based research elements in the course.
