Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of the Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs.
About the Book: Curating Community argues that museums and constitutions invite visitors to gloss over the biases and complexities of society. The book asks us to reconsider deep questions about how we conceptualize the limits of ourselves, as well as our political communities, in order to attend to everyday questions of justice in the courtroom, the museum, and beyond.
About the Author: Stacy Douglas is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Law and Legal Studies. Her research interests pertain to theories of democracy, the role of the state, the relationship between government and governed, and processes of decolonization.
Stacy will be joined by Ming Tiampo, Professor of Art History and Director of the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature Art and Culture at Carleton University, and Jonathan Shaughnessy, Associate Curator, Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Canada, for a short panel Q&A.
This event is part of the Ottawa International Writer’s Festival.
