Ethically Engaged University

Date: Thursday, June 13, 12:00-13:00
Online: Zoom
Language: English
Speaker: Emiliano Bosio


In this session, Emiliano Bosio will explore the concept of an ethically engaged university, prompting critical reflection on the role of universities in today's complex societies. The ethically engaged university aims to develop students’ critical consciousness toward a “global ethic,” grounded in five dimensions: praxis, reflexive dialogue, caring ethics, humanity empowerment, and an ecocritical perspective. As discussed in the session, the ethically engaged university serves as an ethical platform oriented towards social justice, offering all students, not just those in the Global North, a meaningful way to examine our “Shared Planet.”
