Martha Nussbaum Public Lecture: "Celebrity and Sexual Violence"

March 20th, 2018 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Salomon Center Room 001

Please join the Philosophy Department for "Celebrity and Sexual Violence" presented by Martha Nussbaum, University of Chicago.

"For many years, even while legal treatment of sexual violence improved in U.S. society as a whole, celebrities, particular in entertainment and sports, escaped accountability.  This lecture traces the reform of criminal law in the areas of rape and sexual violence from the 1960's to the present, looks at how things stand now, and then turns to our current moment, when celebrities are finally being held accountable.  I suggest that the culture of big-money college sports is likely to prove recalcitrant to reform for some time to come because of the way in which greed frequently corrupts the entirety of an institution's culture."

Martha Nussbaum is the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago. She has taught at Harvard and Oxford Universities, and from 1984 to 1995 at Brown.
