The Byrne Colloquium is a new interdisciplinary colloquium series that brings together theorists from philosophy, politics, law, and beyond to discuss works-in-progress by distinguished scholars. Sessions are held thrice yearly – once each term – and a paper for each session is circulated in advance to participants. Those unable to read the paper in advance are nevertheless welcome to attend as a summary of the paper will be given. It is expected that papers by visiting guests will have broad academic and cross-disciplinary appeal.
The second Byrne Colloquium, on March 4th, will be co-convened by Professor Ruth Chang (University of Oxford) and Professor Alison Hills (University of Oxford). Professor Hills will introduce a paper by the guest speaker Professor Miranda Fricker (City University of New York).
If you would like to attend this Byrne Colloquium or the forthcoming Byrne Colloquium on May 7th during which Professor Sophie Smith (University of Oxford) will engage with Professor Imani Perry (Princeton University), please e-mail to register before 0th week of Michaelmas Term 2019 (October 6th 2019).
The Colloquium is made possible by a generous donation by Patrick M. Byrne.
