Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My research and teaching largely focuses on global justice. I consider severe poverty a fundamental human rights violation, and would like to help promote academics' impact on this issue.

Hello Elizabeth, nice to meet you yesterday at the ASAP event. As promised you might be interested in Jean-Francois (Jeff) Mouhot's article drawing parallels between slavery (first slavery was OK, then it was understood not to have very nice 'side effects' but necessary for 'progress'...) and climate change (first denial, now increasingly accepted, but still seeing those affected most as 'necessary collateral damage' on road to 'progress')... will parallels continue (and we thus one day find climate cahnge abhorrent and realise we don't need to kill the planet, like we realised we could still progress without slavery)?!
Past connections and present similarities in slave
ownership and fossil fuel usage

Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)! We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests by joining an affinity group or participating in a discussion on one of the forums. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start a group or discussion of your own! As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. So thanks again for being a part of it, and thanks in advance for your contributions.  We also hope that you’ll join us at our in-person conference to be held Oct. 6-8, 2011 in Washington, DC.  Please note the details on the PPN website.
