The Political Theory research group at the Department of Political Science aims to broaden the study of political theory in the areas of political science and the social sciences more broadly. Our research spans a variety of traditions in both the history of political thought and contemporary political theory, and it covers a wide range of issues, including empire, secularism, democracy, ideology, tolerance, freedom, and inequality.

Activities
The activities of the Political Theory research group include workshops, day-long seminars, and international research conferences. The Political Theory research group also hosts Visiting Professors who contribute to specific areas of interest in the research group. The Political Theory research group works closely with the student organization SUVERÆN to promote the study of political theory. Click here for past and upcoming events.
