Brunel Social and Political Thought Research Group Seminar Series 2013
The Revolutionary Foundations of Modern Political Thought
This seminar series aims to
explore the ways in which revolutionary politics, movements and events,
and responses to them, have shaped and transformed the vocabulary of
modern political thought. Brunel, national and international scholars
will explore these themes in thinkers and movements ranging from the
early modern period to contemporary radical political thought, in
political and social theory, philosophy, film and literature.
