Social and Political Thought Workshop Series

The Social and Political Thought Workshop Series is a series of bi-weekly lunchtime workshops that are held over the entire academic year. Each workshop features a guest speaker who addresses a topic in the wide range of multi-disciplinary areas that deal with social and political life. Papers are distributed and read in advance of the workshop meeting, allowing plenty of time for group discussion. Guest speakers have come from such fields as philosophy, political science, law, economics, sociology, and divinity studies. Past topics have included global justice, identity politics, religion and public reason, democratic theory, privacy, due process, domestic violence, legal positivism, and genetic engineering. All members and friends of the Vanderbilt community are invited to attend. For further information, please contact: Larry May, Marilyn Friedman or Robert Talisse.
