10:30 AM The Kyoto Prize Symposium Featuring the 2016 Arts and Philosophy Kyoto Prize Laureate Martha Craven Nussbaum, PhD

Martha Craven Nussbaum introduced the notion of incorporating individual human capabilities (what each person is able to do or be) into the criteria for social justice, beyond the conventional theory of equality based on a social contract among rational individuals. She established a new theory of justice that ensures the inclusion of the weak and marginalized, who are deprived of opportunities to develop their capabilities in society, and has proposed ways to apply this theory in the real world.

Nussbaum is the current Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago, and she is the author or editor of a number of books, including The Fragility of Goodness (1986), Sex and Social Justice (1998), The Sleep of Reason (2002), Hiding From Humanity: Disgust, Shame, and the Law (2004), Frontiers of Justice: Disability, Nationality, Species Membership (2006), and Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs Humanities (2010).

6:00 PM Debate: Is Immigration a Basic Human Right? Every nation claims the authority to control and limit who crosses its borders. But does this claim of authority stand up to moral scrutiny? What would happen if we thought of free migration as a basic human right, and held all nations responsible for respecting it? Is a policy of "open borders" a moral imperative? Or would open borders be a moral and economic disaster?

7:30 PM Italian Film: Nemiche Per La Pelle (Best Enemies Forever) Fabiola, a successful realtor, and Lucia, a dog psychologist, have hated each other since their first meeting. Though completely different, they share a man in their life, Paolo, Lucia's ex-husband, who is now married to Fabiola. When Paolo dies unexpectedly, he leaves behind Paolino, a half-Chinese boy whose existence had been kept secret from the women.

7:30 PM Stage: Anansi, The Story King UCSD Theatre presents an undergraduate production of Nadine Geojge-Graves' adaptation of the popular tale of Anansi. Anansi, the spider, wants to own all the stories in the world. Nyame, the sky god, has all the stories and is willing to give them to Anansi…for a steep price. When Sheri, the firefly, gets caught in Anansi's web, she quickly figures out how to help him on his quest (and perhaps save herself at the same time)! With Sheri's help, Anansi goes on a journey to find Nyame's three items. Along the way, he finds out a thing or two about himself and the ways in which we are all connected, like the complex tangle of a spider's web. An ensemble provides stories, music, singing and dancing as the two adventurers help Anansi fulfill his lifelong wish. Family friendly and for all ages! George-Graves directs.
