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 Colloquia are co-convened by a member of the Jurisprudence Teaching Group and another Oxford faculty member from one of a variety of philosophically-minded disciplines. Ruth Chang co-convenes for 2019-20.
The Colloquium takes place in the Lecture Room at 10 Merton Street, 5-7 p.m. If you would like to attend one or more sessions of the Byrne Colloquium in a given year, please e-mail email@example.com
before 0th week of Michaelmas Term of the relevant academic year.
The Colloquium is made possible by a generous donation by Patrick M. Byrne.
Accompanying each colloquium will be a Byrne Seminar for students during which the paper and any other relevant material to the colloquium will be discussed. The seminars for the 2019-20 academic year will be convened by Ruth Chang and will take place on the following dates in the Clifford Chance Room at the St. Cross Building:
