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 first Byrne Colloquium, on October 17th, will be co-convened by Professor Ruth Chang (University of Oxford) and Dr. Grant Lamond (University of Oxford). Dr. Lamond will introduce a paper by the guest speaker Professor John Tasioulas (King's College London).
