The 2nd meeting was held at Temple University on the 22nd and 23rd of March. The meeting was officially opened with remarks by Espen Hammer and Martin Shuster. The two-day event was well attended by members from Temple, the New School, University of Pennsylvania, and surrounding schools (not to mention scholars from all over the world).
The papers given were again of extremely high quality, as was the level of discussion. A spirited round table was held again on the second day, that saw the participants grappling with how to pursue critical theory within practical contexts.
Many thanks to Espen Hammer and Temple University.
The next meeting will be hosted by Brian O’Connor, at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
