Following from the appointment of Michael Freeden as Professor of Political Theory, the School of Politics and International Relations is delighted to announce the inaugural event of our new Centre for Political Ideologies, which will be co-Directed by Professor Freeden, Dr Mathew Humphrey (SPIR) and Professor Maiken Umbach (Department of History).
The Centre is committed to the interdisciplinary study of political thought, particularly in its more vernacular and popular forms, in both the present and the past. That the Centre is a joint venture between Politics and History underlines this interdisciplinary commitment.
The inaugural, day-long conference will take place on Tuesday 23rd July at the University of Nottingham, on the theme of 'liberalism and diversity' - an exploration of how one of the dominant ideologies of the modern age has responded to and adapted with the challenge of cultural, ethnic, and ideational diversity. Keynote speakers include Michael Freeden (Nottingham), Bo Strath (Helsinki), and Julian Wright (Durham).
