When I began my PhD in Sociology in the United States, I did not have a specific dissertation question in mind. Rather, I began with a broad set of overarching questions that emerged from particular contradictions, injustices, and peculiarities I saw in the world around me. Given the vast inequities we face as a society, how are we able to address power relationships inherent in altruism, voluntarism, and philanthropy? What does it mean to develop our moral capacities to serve our fellow human beings, given that our human relationships are both informed by and inform larger economic, political, social, and cultural structures? How do we not just study injustice, but address injustice in meaningful ways?
