Abstract

The senior speech theme for senior communications in the Spring 2019 Senior Seminar course at ONU is Justice.

Justice was selected by Merriam Webster as the 2018 word of the year. Their reasoning for this choice included that "(t)he concept of justice was at the center of many of our national debates in the past year: racial justice, social justice, criminal justice, economic justice. In any conversation about these topics, the question of just what exactly we mean when we use the term justice is relevant, and part of the discussion."

Discerning justice has been a foundation of every culture and civilization and has seldom been imagined without controversy and tension.

Each of our speakers will offer a unique position speech on the theme of justice, forwarding a clear thesis supported by scholarly evidence.
