Ethics at Noon talk by Teresa Bejan, UTM Political Science

The Centre for Ethics is pleased to present an Ethics at Noon seminar:

Teresa Bejan, UTM Department of Political Science

Evangelical Toleration

Teresa Bejan's research brings early modern perspectives to bear on questions in contemporary political theory and practice. She comes to UTM from Columbia, where she was a Fellow in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities and a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science. She received her M.Phil. from Cambridge and her Ph.D. with distinction from Yale University. Her work on religious toleration and civic education in early modern English political thought has appeared in History of European Ideas and the Oxford Review of Education, as well as several edited volumes. Her current book project, Mere Civility: Tolerating Disagreement in Early Modern England and America, examines widespread calls for civility today in light of 17th-century debates about religious toleration and so-called "persecution of the tongue."

This event is free and open to all.  Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Ethics at (416) 978-6288.
