Social Justice Research Academy

  • Top Social Justice
    • Social Justice Research Academy:  The Social Justice Research Academy brings students together with Penn faculty to examine the historical importance and the contemporary relevance of struggles to overcome inequality and injustice.

      Morning Lectures and Discussions: Attend classes with Penn faculty from several disciplines, including urban/global studies, philosophy, race and gender, economics and community development, politics, law and policy, history, sociology, environment, and public health.

      Afternoon Workshops and Site Visits: Participate in activities with special guests from community groups, cooperatives, socially responsible businesses, labor unions, political advocacy organizations, environmental projects, urban farms, research institutes, and philanthropies.

      The promise of – and the struggle for – freedom is one of the enduring narratives of human society. The faculty will call upon knowledge and experience from many sources:

      -past struggles: peasant revolts, slave rebellions, anti-colonial and anti-apartheid independence movements
      -present struggles: Arab Spring, Occupy, and ongoing human rights campaigns across the globe

      This academy has been designed for students who are interested in:
      -society, economy, politics, and environment
      -doing research supplemented by photography, video, music, art, or digital design
      -developing skills for leadership and organizational development
      -doing projects related to freedom, justice, equality, sustainability, peace, and fairness
