The Political Theory Workshop is a forum for the presentation of new research in all varieties of political theory and political philosophy, including work in the history of political thought; contributions to normative political theory; theoretical engagements with problems in contemporary politics and public policy; and theoretical reflection on fundamental political concepts or phenomena. Our weekly seminars include presentations of work in progress by advanced graduate students, as well as University of Chicago faculty, faculty at other Chicago-area institutions, and a small number of invited guests from around the country. The Workshop subscribes to no particular methodology or political ideology, and welcomes participants from all departments and disciplines.
Papers presented at the workshop are only accessible to those on our email list. To sign up for our email list, please visit: https://lists.uchicago.edu/web/subscribe/ptnet
