Faculty Fellows History

History of the CSJS Justice Faculty Fellows Program

The Justice Faculty Fellows Program has been in existence with the Center for the Study of Justice in Society (CSJS) since 2005. The research seminar seeks to foster interdisciplinary and/or collaborative faculty scholarship to promote justice. Faculty fellows apply to participate in a seminar group of their choice and then work with the seminar directors—distinguished SU faculty scholars—on particular topics. At the end of the year, fellows present their works-in-progress to other participating fellows and invited guests in a roundtable session. 

The CSJS is proud to have had more than 70 Justice Faculty Fellows and seminar directors participate in the program in the past five years!

Past topics/seminar directors include: Qualitative Research for Social Change with Jeanette Rodriguez; Community-Based Research, Academic Service Learning, and the Duwamish River: Fostering Interdisciplinary Approaches to Environmental Justice withChristina Roberts; Complexities of Executing Social Justice Pedagogy with Pamela Taylor; Reparations with Margaret Chon; Indigenous People and Human Rights with Ted Fortier; Taking Africa Seriously: In Three Steps with Femi Taiwo; Global Bioethics as an Instrument of Social Justice with Annette Clark; Family and Society with Jodi O'Brien; Postcolonial Theory: Knowledge, Power & Resistance with Tayyab Mahmud; The Quest for Justice in Latin America with Marc McLeod; Transforming Business: Enterprise Solutions to Poverty with Meenakshi Rishi; The Heart of Higher Education: Inspiring Purpose & Meaning through Reflective Practices with Kellee Franklin; Social Injustice Unveiled: Bias in Media Depictions of Female Offenders with Elaine Gunnison; and Philanthropy and the Public Good with Michael Bisesi.
