The Political Theory Workshop provides an informal and interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of works in progress. The workshop features papers by Yale faculty members, visiting scholars, and graduate students in the fields of political philosophy, social theory, ethics, intellectual history, and related disciplines. Papers are distributed in advance when available and participants come prepared to discuss them in detail.

Unless otherwise noted, the Political Theory Workshop meets Wednesdays from 4:15-6:00 p.m. in Room 202 at Rosenkranz Hall.

The schedules for Fall 2023 and previous workshops can be found above.
