Political Theory Workshop

The Political Theory Workshop offers faculty and other scholars an opportunity to present "in progress" or recently completed work to a diverse audience from political science, philosophy, law, and other social sciences and humanities.  Workshop papers come from all areas of political theory, including normative and positive theory, legal theory, and the history of political thought.  Papers are circulated ten days before the seminar. Participants are expected to read the paper before the workshop.  Each session begins with comments and questions on the paper by a discussant, a brief response from the author, followed by a general discussion.  All members of the university community are welcome to attend the workshop. This workshop is co-sponsored by the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in SocietyJoin the Political Theory Workshop mailing list. Faculty Convenor: Emilee Chapman
