Location: 
Integrative Learning Center, Communication Hub, 3rd Floor

Amit Schejter, professor at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel and Pennsylvania State University, presents from his new book "A Justice-Based Approach for New Media Policy: In the Paths of Righteousness" (Palgrave, 2017).

Developing distributive justice approaches to media research, this public lecture calls for a conceptual leap from focusing on "freedom" to focusing on "equality" and from emphasizing "liberty" to concentrating on "capability."

This event is co-sponsored by the department of journalism, school of public policy, and the National Center for Digital Government.
