William Miller will present the Fall 2016 Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding on Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Ft. Howard Theater of the Bemis International Conference Center on the St. Norbert College campus. The lecture, "The Word Peace and the Word Justice, and Why Sometimes the Peacemakers Are Blessed (but Only Sometimes)," is free and open to the public.

Miller's lecture will examine the often-complex relationship between peace and justice and the challenges encountered in reconciling the two.

Miller, son of Norman and Shirlyn Miller, is the Thomas G. Long Professor of Law at the University of Michigan, serving on the university's faculty since 1984. Miller received his B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, a Ph.D. in English from Yale University and a J.D. from Yale. Miller has had visiting professorships at Yale University, the University of Chicago, the University of Bergen, the University of Tel Aviv and Harvard University. In 2008, Miller was named the Carnegie Centenary Trust Professor at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where he is an honorary professor of history. Miller's interests and research lie in interdisciplinary perspectives on law, legal and medieval histories, law and the humanities, and social and political theory.

The Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding was established in 1993 by the Norman Miller Family Foundation to honor Norman's brother, Louis Miller, who died in 1989. When Norman died in 2008, his name was added to the lecture series, which promotes unity, communication and tolerance among different cultures, religions, ethnicities and traditions.
