Colloquium CAPS Panel Discussion - Saturday, April 25, 2015, 4:00 PM, SURC 301

On Saturday, April 25 at 4 PM in SURC 301, you are invited to a discussion with CWU philosophy alums and professors on the topic of "childism," a word coined by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl to describe pervasive prejudice against children in contemporary American society. She argues that this prejudice justifies and normalizes not only overt and familial forms of child abuse and neglect, but also our collective toleration of child poverty, how juveniles are treated in the criminal system, and lack of access to high-quality childcare and education.
