Tri-Co Political Theory Workshop

Overview


The Tri-Co Political Theory Workshop is a faculty forum to discuss new work in all types of political theory, political philosophy and related fields in the humanities and social sciences. The workshop combines faculty and resources from Haverford, Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr, as well as other faculty in colleges and universities in the wider Philadelphia region, to create a thriving venue for developing new research. The workshop’s long-term goal is to strengthen the political theory community in the Tri-College consortium, and to foster high-quality scholarship that has an impact well beyond it.

The Workshop meets on selected Tuesdays and Thursdays during the semester (generally every other week). Papers are distributed in advance and participants are expected to come prepared to discuss them.

The workshop is organized by Paulina Ochoa Espejo (Haverford) and Joel Alden Schlosser (Bryn Mawr). Please email one of us to join our mailing list.

Our work is sponsored by a Mellon Tri-College FacultyForum Program.

All workshops will begin at 4:30 pm and run until roughly 6:15 pm. For those new to the workshop, papers will be circulated at least one week before our meeting. Workshop participants should read the paper and come ready to discuss. Presenters will begin with a few remarks at the beginning of the meeting but we try to reserve the vast majority of our time for discussion.
