 Check out the following series of colloquium-style conferences:

2013 Symposia on Scholarship & a Free Society

The Institute for Humane Studies will host two colloquium-style academic conferences for graduate students pursuing liberty-advancing research in the humanities.
  • May 24-27 at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia
  • July 19-22 at Chapman University in Orange County, California
Continuing IHS’s legacy of catalyzing discipline-shaping ideas, this year’s Scholarship & a Free Society program will support the next wave of influential thinkers contributing to the classical liberal intellectual tradition by bringing them together with current leading scholars in their fields.
Each symposium will feature plenary sessions by keynote speakers presenting ideas and career advice, related cutting-edge research in a range of disciplines, and interactive breakout sessions including participant research presentations. Past plenary speakers at IHS summer programs include Friedrich Hayek, Robert Nozick, Milton Friedman, Peter Boettke, and David Schmidtz.
All applicants are invited to submit a paper proposal for presentation. Paper proposals should address a subject of scholarly significance that draws upon the classical liberal intellectual tradition, explores the significance of human freedom both past and present, or furthers our understanding of the principles and characteristics of a free society.
