APOLOGY: Its Role in Social & Political Life

This WEBINAR launches the Social Research Issue,

APOLOGY / Vol. 87, No. 4 (Spring 2021)

Given the many current, public demands for apology and accountability, the subject is clearly important. The webinar will focus on the role of apology in our social and political life, and the conditions under which apologies matter and do not matter. The speakers will address the topic through a variety of lenses exploring

restorative justice, the role of reparations for slavery, apology for abusing women, political apologies and the global politics of restitution, among others.
