About the MLA Lecture Series
Last year’s series examined “The Value of Justice;” this year’s series is focused on justice’s frequent partner, complement, or antithesis: Mercy. The series will consider the concept and practice of mercy from several disciplinary directions, including politics, medicine, religious studies, and literature.
