Two cities. Five days. Boundless ideas.
The Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) is pleased to invite you to participate in one of this year’s Summer Seminars! Summer Seminars bring together graduate students and faculty to explore the nature of free society. Lectures, discussions, and evening socials lead to connections—intellectual and personal connections—that can last a lifetime.
In 2020, IHS will host five-day seminars in Washington, DC and Chapel Hill, NC.
The Classical Liberal Tradition
Washington, DC | June 16 – 21, 2020
Investigating the liberal account of free societies, from the proto-liberalism of Locke and Montesquieu through Smith, Hayek, the Ostroms, and beyond.
Modern Challenges to Liberty
Chapel Hill, NC | July 7 – 12, 2020
How much equality is enough? What to make of the alt-right? When are governments and markets likely to fail? Engage the strongest critics of liberalism and find their own response to their critiques.
