The department’s annual Griffith Lecture was delivered on January 29, 2016, by Dr. Meena Krishnamurthy, assistant professor of philosophy and the program in philosophy, politics, and economics at the University of Michigan. Professor Krishnamurthy works in social and political philosophy, mostly on topics in democratic theory. She is developing an account of the nature and value of (political) distrust, particularly as it is formulated and explored in the work of radical political thinkers, such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.
