Final Senior Humanities speaker on campus
Posted 04/24/2009 11:17AM

Dr. Jenn Hazen, Senior Researcher at the Small Arms Survey, is on campus this week as the final speaker in the Senior Humanities Program. She will be speaking and visiting classes, a variety of clubs/organization, the faculty and also presenting a speech at the Wednesday night Senior Humanities dinner.

Dr. Hazen will be speaking on Truth in a talk entitled "Peace vs. Justice: Or is Truth another way?" Within the context of her experience with conflict resolution in Africa (Sudan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Liberia) the talk will discuss some of the troubles with “Truth.”   These troubles include finding “truth” to begin with—because history can be so murky and subjective that even well-intentioned investigations cannot establish anything that should actually be called, with a straight face, "truth."
