'Is War Just a (Bad) Idea? On the Coevolution of Political Community, War and Peace'
Over the course of Hilary Term and Trinity Term 2017, the Department of Politics and International Relations is convening a new seminar series on Ideas and Political Violence, with six planned seminars each term held on Thursdays at 4pm, in Lecture Room 6 at New College. We hope that participants and guest speakers may then continue the discussions over drinks at the Turf Tavern.
The relationship between ideas and political violence is a key interdisciplinary interest of modern academia, and this seminar series will seek to capitalise on the expanding wave of new scholarship, bringing this into the DPIR’s research community and adding momentum to it by providing a forum for discussion between academic staff, graduate students, and visiting speakers on cutting-edge research work.
The series continues this Trinity Term, and we welcome interested attendees from across the university. Anyone interested in further information, should email one of the seminar convenors, Dr Elizabeth Frazer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Jonathan Leader Maynard (email@example.com).
