On Saturday 4 May 2002 from 10.00am to 6.30pm, the Department of Politics
and International Studies at the University of Warwick will host its fourth
annual conference for postgraduate students working in political theory or
political philosophy. The three previous events have been very successful,
attracting a wide range of high quality papers, and participants from many
countries. Past participants have reported that the conference provides a
useful opportunity for graduate students to gain experience and receive
feedback on work in progress.

As well as postgraduate papers, there will be two Plenary Sessions. Prof.
Harry Brighouse (Institute of Education, London) and Dr. Matthew Clayton
(Brunel) will debate Liberalism, Autonomy, and the Family. Dr. Stuart Elden
(Warwick) will discuss Heidegger's Rhetorical Politics.

political thought, but should take no more than twenty minutes to present.
