Event description

Description

This public lecture is Thursday, October 13 at 4pm at the Law School, with Martha Nussbaum, Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, and William Baude, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor of Law.

Professor Nussbaum will be discussing the distinction between envy and ambition, and the idea of dueling. Professor Baude will also pick up on themes of ambition, but talk about its place in the constitutional structure and separation of powers.

The Tony award winning production of Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now.

This event is brought to by the ArtsPass Program, Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, the Center for Leadership and Involvement and the Center of Race Politics and Culture.

Reservations will be required.
