Mediating Care & Justice Research Seminar Series: Amit Schejter

Event date/time: 

Friday, October 20, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Professor Schejter, Professor at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel and at Pennsylvania State University, presents from his new book A Justice-Based Approach for New Media Policy: In the Paths of Righteousness (Palgrave, 2017). Developing distributive justice approaches to media research, this public lecture calls for a conceptual leap from focusing on ‘freedom’ to focusing on ‘equality’ and from emphasizing ‘liberty’ to concentrating on ‘capability’.

This event is cosponsored by the UMass School of Public Policy and UMass National Center for Digital Government
