While Justice Everywhere takes a break over the summer, we recall from our archives some memorable posts from our 2018-2019 season.
Here are five good reads on issues relating to justice and/in the academy that you may have missed or be interested to re-read:
- Matthew Adams on Justice and ‘Contingent Faculty’, which explores whether permanent university faculty have responsibilities to their colleagues holding (much) less secure positions, and if so, what these could be.
- Mirjam Muller’s post entitled Who Cares: Emotional Labour in Academia, which persuasively highlights three reasons why we should care about a more equal distribution in providing emotional labour within our universities.
- David Yarrow on Grade Inflation, Market Ideology, and the Contradictions of UK Higher Education Policy, which responds to politicians blaming academics for lowering standards by arguing that these effects are caused by their own ideologically-driven market reforms.
- Lisa Herzog’s post addressing the question: What, if anything, is wrong with private money in political philosophy?
- Robert Simpson’s essay, published as a two-part post, on Universities and Democratic Legitimacy.
Justice Everywhere will return in full swing on 2nd September with fresh weekly posts by our regular authors. If you have a suggestion for a topic or would like to contribute a guest post on a topical subject in political philosophy (broadly construed), please feel free to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
