I'm putting together a new course proposal for an upper-level undergraduate seminar entitled, "Contemporary Theories of Justice." However, I haven't taught a course like this in a while, and would like to put together a really great syllabus: one that exposes students to cutting-edge work from a diverse variety of perspectives. Because it's hard to keep abreast of everything out there (my own research interests have at least temporarily drifted away from theorizing about justice), I'd like to ask you, the Cocoon readers, for some recommendations.
Which book(s)/articles/authors do you consider "must-reads" for a course like the one I described above? Why? Many thanks in advance to everyone who chimes in!
