The Oxford Philosophy, Law, and Politics Colloquium is a new interdisciplinary colloquium series that brings together theorists from philosophy, politics, law, and beyond to discuss works-in-progress by distinguished visiting scholars. Sessions are held approximately 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 Colloquium is co-convened by Ruth Chang and another Oxford faculty member from across the philosophy, politics, and law faculties.
The Colloquium normally takes place in the Lecture Room at 10 Merton Street (University College) from 5:00-7:00 p.m. During 2020-21, all Colloquia will be conducted on Zoom from 3:00-5:00 p.m. GMT. To attend any Colloquium, please register by emailing oxfordPLPevents@gmail.com
