Book Launch for Rousseau and Dignity


You are cordially invited to a book launch for

Rousseau and Dignity: Art Serving Humanity

edited by Julia V. Douthwaite


"A remarkable and unusual book, Rousseau and Dignity has as much to tell us about our present situation as it does the world of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Embracing varied responses to Rousseau’s work—from scholars in diverse fields, activists, artists, curators, university students, and schoolchildren—this collection laudably refuses the comforts of commemoration, shining a light instead on the vivid contemporary relevance of Rousseau’s thought. Global in their reach, erudite, and frequently moving, the contributions to Rousseau and Dignity are unafraid to address Rousseau in his complexity and contradiction, and demonstrate how the issues of social justice, human development, and education that emerge in his writing remain urgent concerns today." —Richard Taws, University College London

The event is sponsored by
