Haslanger to examine philosophy lecture

LEWISBURG — Sally Haslanger, professor of philosophy and director of women's and gender studies at MIT, will give the talk, "Structural Injustice: What it is and how it's hidden," Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center at Bucknell University.

The talk, which is free and open to the public, is presented by the Department of Philosophy as the 2013 Roy Wood Sellars Lecture. In her talk, Haslanger will examine the concept of "structural injustice" as it is expressed in the very concepts of race and gender and reinforced through forces that often go unnoticed or unaccounted for, such as systemic biases and group norms.
