He is also a prominent social critic and public intellectual, having published over 200 articles in journals of public affairs in the U.S. and abroad on the issues of racial inequality and social policy. Loury is a Fellow of the Econometric Society, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a past Vice President of the American Economics Association.

He also writes popular essays on social and political themes as a public intellectual.

In this lecture, he will revisit some of the themes he first addressed in his 2006-2007 Tanner Lectures on Human Values at Stanford University, on racial stigma, mass incarceration and human values.

All welcome.
