Lecture Series

Each year, the Injustice League Lecture Series (ILLS) invites three to four, primarily early-career scholars working on questions broadly related to social and political injustice.  The UConn philosophy environment is one of collaboration, camaraderie, and debate, and we welcome papers that are still in their early stages.
