Seminar series: The Revolutionary Foundations of Modern Political Thought

Brunel Social and Political Thought Research Group Seminar Series 2012/13 

The Revolutionary Foundations of Modern Political Thought

 Following successful seminar series and international conferences in the last years, the Brunel Social and Political Thought research group will organise another seminar series in 2012/13: ‘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.
