Extracurricular Opportunity

“Tocqueville and Liberty” Discussion Colloquium

You are invited, as part of a select group of students, to participate in a discussion colloquium on “Tocqueville and Liberty” this fall at George Washington University.

Sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies, this day-long colloquium will center on informal, yet serious, discussion with just fifteen participants. We, Sam Goldman and Theo Christov, will serve as the discussion leaders in order to facilitate an in-depth exploration of the questions and challenges raised by a set of readings (totaling around 150 pages) on the topic of moral foundations of liberty, which we will provide you with and ask you to read carefully in advance.

The event will take place on Saturday November 12, 2016 on the George Washington University campus. Please be sure that your schedule allows you to arrive in time for breakfast, and to be present through the concluding dinner Saturday night. You will be expected to attend the full program, including discussions, meals, and socials. As compensation for your participation, IHS will provide you a $100 stipend.

If you would like to attend this colloquium, please accept your invitation as soon as possible. This is a very small, select group of students and space is limited.

We are eager to embark on this intellectual adventure with you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sam Goldman and Dr. Theo Christov
