IHS Summer Research Colloquium for Graduate Students in Philosophy 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Insti­tute for Humane Stud­ies at George Mason Uni­ver­sity (GMU) is proud to host a colloquium-​style aca­d­e­mic con­fer­ence for grad­u­ate stu­dents pur­su­ing liberty-​advancing research in the human­i­ties and social sci­ences tak­ing place at Chap­man Uni­ver­sity in Orange, CA, United States on July 10 – 13, 2014.

    Con­tin­u­ing IHS’s legacy of fos­ter­ing young intel­lec­tual think­ing in clas­si­cal lib­eral aca­d­e­mics, this year’s Research Col­lo­quium allows grad­u­ate stu­dents to present their research in a conference-​style set­ting to top schol­ars in their field. The col­lo­quium presents a unique oppor­tu­nity to receive con­struc­tive feed­back on your papers with an empha­sis toward pub­li­ca­tion readiness.

    Keynote Speaker

    We are pleased to announce that our spe­cial guest keynote speaker will be Dr. David Schmidtz, Kendrick Pro­fes­sor of Phi­los­o­phy and joint pro­fes­sor of Eco­nom­ics at the Uni­ver­sity of Ari­zona, Tuscon.

    Call for papers

    All appli­cants are invited to sub­mit a paper pro­posal for pre­sen­ta­tion. Paper pro­pos­als should address a sub­ject of schol­arly sig­nif­i­cance that draws upon the clas­si­cal lib­eral intel­lec­tual tra­di­tion, explores the sig­nif­i­cance of human free­dom both past and present, or fur­thers our under­stand­ing of the prin­ci­ples and char­ac­ter­is­tics of a free society.

    Eli­gi­ble sub­mis­sions may come from phi­los­o­phy, eco­nom­ics, polit­i­cal sci­ence, his­tory, and other related fields. Papers that use inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and mixed method­olog­i­cal approaches are also wel­come, though not required. Pri­or­ity accep­tance to the sym­posia will be given to appli­cants ready to present a paper.

    The con­fer­ence for­mat will con­sist of roughly a 30-​minute pre­sen­ta­tion includ­ing Q&A.
