Political Philosophy meets Politics, Bristol, 30 October 2017, 9am-5pm

What happens when political philosophers get involved in politics? The only way to find out is to ask them; to have them tell their story, and share whatever lessons they’ve learnt with those who would like to do similar things in the future. As a result, we’re putting on a one-day event here in Bristol during which a select few political philosophers, with real experience of ‘real politics’, address and interact with an audience made up of both early-career political philosophers/theorists from around the country and Bristol-based students, staff, and members of the general public.

This event will be a chance to hear at length from our keynote speakers as regards their academic and political experience, as well as a chance to ask questions and interact with them and other interested attendees throughout the day. Early-career political theorists/philosophers based in the UK are very likely to have their travel expenses covered to attend this event (PhD students and those within a few years of their first appointment). In order to secure this funding, and to check that it is still available at the time of your enquiry, please book a ticket below and then email Jonathan.Floyd@Bristol.ac.uk. Food and drink will be provided for everyone attending throughout the day.

Keynote speakers are as follows:

Professor Philip Pettit (ANU/Princeton)

Professor/Baroness Onora O’Neill (University of Cambridge/The House of Lords)

Professor Tariq Modood (University of Bristol)

Professor Karma Nabulsi (University of Oxford)

Professor Tony Wright (UCL)
