Register Now: 2024 Association for the History of Political Thought Conference, “Democracy and Its Pathologies”
The Association for the History of Political Thought invites participants to register for its 2024 conference on the theme “Democracy and Its Pathologies” taking place March 1-2, 2024 at the University of Texas, Austin.
Through an analysis of historical texts, papers will address questions such as: what is the best case for democracy, and what is the best case against it? Does the democratic regime have a democratic soul modeled on it? Is modern democracy different in kind than ancient democracy? Does democracy foster its own defective political forms (demagoguery, populism)?
Participants will include JMC faculty partners Aurelian Craiutu, Dan Kapust, Michael Gillespie, Harvey Mansfield, John Scott, Ryan Patrick Hanley, Steven Smith, and Lorraine Pangle and fellows Michelle Clarke and Ann Ward.
Registration is free, and the conference is open to the public.
