Presented in partnership with the History and Social Sciences Department at Bryn Athyn College

In this talk, William Ian Miller considers terms for peace and justice in order to get at contemporary society’s approach to them as concepts. Framed by biblical texts, Miller traces origins and developments in several historical cultures drawing on a wide range of sources: literary, historical, legal, and religious. His analysis reveals the light and dark sides to our notions of justice and how we think it best achieved. Rich in insight and humor, Dr. Miller’s lecture promises to be engaging and informative.

William Ian Miller (Ph.D., J.D.) is the Thomas G. Long Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law school. The author of numerous influential books and articles, Dr. Miller’s publications include Hrafnkel or the Ambiguities: Hard Cases, Hard Choices (2017); Why is your Axe Bloody? (2014); Losing it (2011); Audun and the Polar Bear: Luck, Law, and Largesse in a Medieval Tale of Risky Business (2008); Eye for an Eye (2006); Faking It (2003); The Mystery of Courage (2000); The Anatomy of Disgust (1997); and Humiliation (1993).
