Symposium on Equality, Hierarchy and Social Class
The Second Annual Symposium of the Berkeley Center for the Development of Peace and Well-being was held May 9-10 at the Clark Kerr Conference Center on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley. The symposium included presentations by top scholars, commentary and questions, small-group breakout sessions to enable more in-depth discussion of specific aspects of equality, and poster presentations by the Hornaday Fellows. Over 150 members of the academic, professional, and lay community were in attendance. Participants engaged in an intriguing conversation regarding the notions of equality, inequality, egalitarianism, and hierarchy across time, space, and species.
