The Search for Economic Justice

Please join us for the opening reception of a new exhibition featuring the photographs and writings of UWL faculty involved in the new multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary, general education course, Search for Economic Justice. The exhibit brings together Archaeology/Anthropology, Economics, English, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Political Science, and Women's Gender and Sexuality Studies. Thorugh the lens of photography, viewers will encounter depictions of various aspects of economic justice in photos, while simultaneously posed different questions pertaining to these depictions, prompting reflection and dialogue about  economics and the human side of economic inequality.
The exhibit runs from October 1, 2016 to November 11, 2016.

This exhibition is made possible by the UWL Foundation Small Grants program and organized by Christine Hippert, Archaeology/Anthropology, Nabamita Dutta, Economics; and Marc Manke, Murphy Library.
