Social Justice Research Academy: SYLLABUS 2014

 SOCIAL JUSTICE RESEARCH ACADEMY 2014: Syllabus

The Social Justice Research Academy, held annually every July at the University of Pennsylvania, is for high school students—from across the USA and around the world—who are interested in the theory, history, and contemporary practice of social justice. In 2014, 53 students from four continents gathered together for three weeks—with Penn faculty from a wide range of disciplines and with activists from the arenas of economy, politics, religion, education, immigration, food, health, culture, community development, and more:

  • to engage in a wide range of critical inquiries and discussions,
  • to attend provocative lectures, films, and site visits, and
  • to participate in activities and workshops, including Theatre of the Oppressed.
