IHS Double Shot at Wake Forest!

Advanced Topics in Liberty: Property Rights & Freedom

Thinking about a PhD? Our Advanced Topics in Liberty seminar is perfect for you!
May 29-31 ● Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC
June 1-3 ● Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC
As part of our summer seminar series, we are hosting two Advanced Topics in Liberty conferences on Property Rights and Freedom. The Advanced Topics in Liberty program is an invitation-only, discussion-based conference series. These conferences feature in-depth, Socratic-style discussion about the ideas, questions, and challenges raised by a set of readings with a discussion leader and fifteen participants from various backgrounds.
This advanced level seminar will take an interdisciplinary approach focusing on all aspects of property rights from historical, economic, and theoretical perspectives. All sessions will be participant-driven, so the conversation is entirely up to you! Participants will be asked to read the assigned selections in advance of the program, and be prepared to discuss them in small groups.  This will give you a taste of an academic and scholarly setting. Readings will be mailed to participants in the spring.
Discussions will be guided by a stellar team of scholars: economist Diana Thomas, political scientist Michael Munger and philosophers Mark LeBar and Jim Otteson. They will help participants engage in in-depth conversations, including the following topics:
  • Origin of Property rights
  • Philosophical Basis for Property Rights
  • Markets and Property Rights
  • Property Rights and the Rule of Law
  • Property Rights and Cultural Contexts
  • Critiques of Property Rights
