Convenor: Dr Clare Chambers (Faculty of Philosophy)

The Political Philosophy Workshop is a forum for discussing work in progress by Cambridge political philosophers.

Papers are pre-circulated on the Workshop mailing list and must be read in advance: there is no presentation of the paper at the Workshop.

The Workshop is open to senior members and graduate students and is not limited to members of the Faculty of Philosophy.

The workshop is held in the Board Room of the Faculty of Philosophy, Sidgwick Site, on Fridays in the even weeks of term.

A major conference on this theme will be held under the auspices of the Centre for Political Thought at Clare College, Cambridge, on 10-11 May 2018. The conference will address the ways in which political philosophers have engaged with concepts of time and the evidence of history. Registration is now open.
