The New School’s Center for Public Scholarship is pleased to present the 28th Social Research conference, Giving: Caring for the Needs of Strangers. The conference is intended to be broadly inclusive, ranging from individual philanthropy, volunteering, and faith-based giving, to state social welfare programs designed to reduce the suffering of citizens, to international giving. Our speakers — scholars, professionals, and philanthropists — deepen our understanding of why we do and should give to others, what the roots of altruism are, how we can instill generosity in our young people, what the religious and philosophical grounds for caring and giving to others are, and what the correct balance between private philanthropy and government welfare programs may be.
