Political philosophy podcast symposium

by Ingrid Robeyns on July 27, 2008

Just back from holidays in the Walloon woods of Belgium – with no access to the internet for two weeks (which feels like a health treatment). While I was there, the Belgian government almost collapsed, the ethno-linguistic battles intensified once more, and the Regime Crisis (now truly with capitals) reached a new height – but I will tell you more about the latest episode of that Drama after I’ve caught up with e-mails.
I only quickly want to flag something with a deadline soon coming up — “Public Reason”:http://publicreason.net/ is organising an online podcast symposium for political philosophers next semester. Sounds like a laudable initiative, especially for those of us who are not physically close to the centres of academic debate and/or limited in their ability (or willingness) to travel to seminars, conferences and workshops. Abstract “submissions”:http://publicreason.net/symposium/ are due by July 31st.

I look forward to your assessment of the Belgian government situation. Very little is said about it here in the U.S.; we only hear about Belgium when InBev buys Anheuser-Busch. I typically rely on the BBC News website
to get any information. It seems astonishing that such a situation can go on for such a long time.
