At Congress 2014, SJRI created a transdisciplinary space fostering dialogue and galvanizing colleagues from the social sciences and humanities around themes of social justice. A key priority was to break down boundaries and connect the threads of social justice scholarship taking place across various associations.
Content from SJRI’s co-sponsored keynote events was recorded and edited into a short montage video. The purpose of this video is to re-create and celebrate this “transdisciplinary social justice experience” from Congress 2014.
Full video footage for the following co-sponsored keynote events is available online:
