Political Theory Project

Seminars & Lectures

Public Lectures and Seminar Series

Each semester the PTP offers large lectures open to the entire Brown community and the general public, as well as a series of smaller workshops that are by invitation. Invited guests are experts in their field from around the world who present diverse topics that are interdisciplinary in nature. 

The Janus Forum Lecture Series, which brings together two prominent speakers with different viewpoints, is the PTP's signature public event.
Each semester, Odyssey Lectures feature a single speaker who will take students on an extended adventure over some new and unexpected intellectual terrain.
