Discussion Colloquia enable faculty and graduate student to learn from each other by participating in structured discussions of foundational texts and contemporary scholarship in the classical liberal tradition selected for their intellectual rigor and relevance to a theme. Faculty and graduate discussion colloquia are hosted in partnership with faculty or academic centers.
We welcome applications and proposals on a variety of topics from scholars in all disciplines, including economics, history, political science, philosophy, PPE, law, literature, business, sociology, psychology, and the visual and performing arts.
Graduate discussion colloquia are designed for advanced graduate students seeking in-depth discussions and a better understanding of specialized topics in the classical liberal tradition.
Advanced Topics in Liberty
Our Advanced Topics in Liberty program is co-sponsored with Liberty Fund, Inc., an Indianapolis-based organization whose mission is to encourage discussion about the ideas of liberty. These invitation-only weekend conferences feature in-depth, Socratic-style discussions led by faculty about the foundational questions and challenges within the classical liberal tradition. The goal of these programs is to foster a discussion among a small group of highly talented and motivated people.
