Politics, Power, and Corporations in America: Then and Now

February 13, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

featuring Benjamin Waterhouse, Associate Professor of History, UNC-CH

Part of our “Policy Matters: The Philosophy, Politics, and Economics behind Our Most Pressing Issues” Humanities in Action Series.

This Spring we collaborate with the UNC/Duke Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Program to highlight this interdisciplinary program’s faculty, who are exploring public issues in their research. For each contemporary challenge, we should ask: What is the ethical course of action? What political risks emerge in confronting it? What are the social and economic costs? Join us for 10 lectures on current controversies that demand ongoing dialogue.

All Humanities in Action events take place at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill. There are no preparatory readings for these events.
