When Dr. Marcus Witcher studied English literature as an undergraduate, he considered the historical context and typically wrote from a historical perspective. During a meeting with an academic adviser in his sophomore year at the University of Central Arkansas, Witcher discussed his interest in graduate school. The advisor suggested that Witcher try out some history classes and consider pursuing history, rather than literature, in graduate school.
A recent IHS colloquium explored “Liberty, Responsibility, and Mental Health,” and explored how classical liberal ideas can be applied when tackling mental health.
Through 32 lectures over six days in two concurrent IHS summer seminars, professors reminded graduate students and other attendees what it means to be guided by the liberalism compass in different facets of life and public policy.
IHS has awarded another round of major faculty awards and spoke with recent winners about their project plans, contributions to the classical liberal tradition, and history with IHS.
As a graduate student, Bambrick first became exposed to IHS through the Hayek Fund for Scholars, which supported her travel to multiple political science conferences across the country.
For nearly 20 years, Mark LeBar has been a popular mainstay at IHS events and programs, especially summer seminars. LeBar first broke onto the IHS scene in 1996, at the recommendation from his professor and fellow IHS alum David Schmidtz.
Experimenting with an innovative format, IHS invited an interdisciplinary group of senior and junior scholars to examine current literature on the impact of regulation in a three-session discussion colloquium.
The colloquium featured the work of a core group of scholars each of whom had, independently of the others, raised important questions related to the funding of science.
