There will be a one day conference at Bilgi University on Friday, November 29th on their Santral campus (room E3-101) from 10am – 3.30pm:

THE TRADITION OF REPUBLICAN THOUGHT AND MIDDLE EASTERN PRACTICES

The speakers are: Philip Pettit (Princeton), Nathan Tarcov (Chicago), Richard Dagger (Richmond), Ofra Bengio (Tel Aviv), Murat Borovali (Bilgi) and Larbi Sadiki (Quatar).

Together with a couple of Bogazici Graduate students, we will be having a short reading group on Philip Pettit’s new book “On the People’s Terms: A Republican Theory and Model of Democracy” before the conference. If anyone would like to join this reading group please feel free to get in touch. I guess we will try and meet two times between now and next Friday.  (lthorpe@gmail.com). I will be teaching a class on ‘Republicanism, Democracy and Freedom’ at Bogazici next semester, that will draw on Pettit’s work.
