Speaker: Tommie Shelby

Harvard University

This event is part of the Nuffield Political Theory Workshop series.

Workshop convenor: Professor Cécile Laborde
Workshop organisers: Anthony Taylor & Annette Zimmermann

The NPTW takes place on Mondays during term time at Nuffield College (Butler Room), 2pm – 3.30 pm.

Workshop format: All papers are pre-circulated to workshop participants a week before the workshop. Participants are expected to attend every week, and to read the paper before the
workshop, as there is no presentation by speakers. During discussions, we use a hand/finger system: participants raise their hand if they have a new, unrelated point, and a finger if they
have a brief point that relates to a previous question.

How to register: All members of the Oxford Political Theory Network are warmly invited to register for the workshop at the start of each term if they seek to attend, by sending an email
to the workshop organisers ( or
