'The Idea of Global Citizenship'Event Details: 3:30 p.m., October 25, Center for Global Citizenship
The Center for Intercultural Studies will present a forum on "The Idea of Global Citizenship" at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, in conference room 124-A in the Center for Global Citizenship.
The modern idea of global citizenship has undergone many iterations since Immanuel Kant defined it as a worldview that considers human beings "not as a means to an end, but as an end." At the forum, a distinguished panel of scholars will reflect on this history as well as the ethical, political and educational values involved in the concept.
The program will include presentations by John Padberg, Ph.D., S.J., director of the Institute of Jesuit Sources; James Bohman, Ph.D., professor of philosophy and international studies, and Danforth Chair in the Humanities in the Department of Philosophy; and Ellen Carnaghan, Ph.D., professor of political science and chair of the Department of Political Science.
