The 36th H.L.A. Hart Memorial Lecture took place on Thursday, 26 May 2022. The lecture this year, part of the series funded by the Tanner Lectures on Human Values, was given by Professor Sally Haslanger, Ford Professor of Philosophy and Women’s and Gender Studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the subject “Social Justice, Culture and Law.”
Sally Haslanger is Ford Professor of Philosophy and Women’s and Gender Studies at MIT. She has published in metaphysics, epistemology, feminist theory, and critical race theory. Broadly speaking, her work links issues of social justice with contemporary work in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind.
The H.L.A. Hart Memorial Lecture is an annual lecture delivered in Oxford by a distinguished speaker. The lecture is named for H.L.A. Hart (1907-1992), who became Professor of Jurisprudence in Oxford in 1952 and was the author of the highly influential book The Concept of Law. The lecture takes place under the auspices of University College, Oxford, where Hart held his chair, and is supported by the Tanner Lectures on Human Values.
