Seminar Schedules

I'd already remarked on Chris Brooke's seminar on Rawls' lectures. He was kind enough to send me the following provisional schedule:

WEEK ONE: Editor's Foreword; Introductory Remarks; Introduction
WEEK TWO: Hobbes I, II, III
WEEK THREE: Hobbes IV; Locke, I, II
WEEK FOUR: Locke III; Hume, I, II
WEEK FIVE: Rousseau I, II, III
WEEK SIX: Mill I, II, III
WEEK SEVEN: Mil IV; Marx, I, II
WEEK EIGHT: Marx III; Concluding Discussion.

Also today I received the schedule for Marc Stears and Ben Jackson's History of Political Thought seminar:

(11th Oct , 17:00) - Dr Sudhir Hazareesingh (Balliol, Oxford), ‘Myths in Modern French Political Culture’
(18th Oct , 17:00) - Dr Duncan Bell (Cambridge), ‘Republican Imperialism in a Liberal Age: J. A. Froude and the Victorian Empire’
(25th Oct , 17:00) - Dr Christopher Brooke (Balliol, Oxford), ‘Grotius, Stoicism and Oikeiosis’
(1st Nov , 17:00) - Dr Richard Bourke (Queen Mary and Westfield College, London), ‘Enlightenment, Revolution and Democracy’
(8th Nov , 17:00) - Dr Valentina Arena (University College, London), ‘Was Liberty in Rome Democratic?’
(15th Nov , 17:00) - Professor Gregory Claeys (Royal Holloway, London), ‘Passion and Order in 18th- and 19th-century British Utopianism’
(22nd Nov , 17:00) - Dr Ben Jackson (University College, Oxford), ‘At the Origins of Neoliberalism: The Debate About Capitalism and Freedom in the 1930s and 40s’
(29th Nov , 17:00) - Dr Marc Stears (University College, Oxford), ‘Democracy’s Demands: Deliberation, Agonism, and the American Democratic Tradition’

I only went to one last year I believe, but was pleasantly surprised it was over by about 6:15-30. If that's the pattern this year, I'll be more inclined to attend - the trouble with living in college is that I miss dinner if seminars go any later...
