Dr. Ron Eglash: Generative Justice: Ethics in the Age of Recursive Risk

October 19 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM - MRGN 121 (1201 West State Street)

Abstract: We are increasingly faced with crises that "go viral": multiplication of terrorist cells; epidemics of hacked websites; toxic blooms. Our instinct is to increase control from the top down--building walls, eavesdropping on citizens, and dropping bombs--but our best chance for improving life comes from the bottom up. Generative Justice offers an alternative framework for rethinking ethical action and ensuring a sustainable future.
