We are very pleased to announce that the Social Justice Research Academy was successfully launched this summer at the University of Pennsylvania. Designed for high school students from around the world, the full-time, month-long, residential program is to be offered here at Penn every July. The Academy brings students together with Penn faculty and other scholars and activists to examine the historical importance and the contemporary relevance of struggles to overcome inequality and injustice.
During July 2012, we held our inaugural, month-long program with 32 students from around the USA and from Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Russia, South Korea, China, and the United Kingdom. For more information about our 2012 Academy, please read my Syllabus (attached below).
