we will be hosting the Montreal Liberty Seminar at McGill University. This free seminar will offer attendees with a chance to hear a series of interdisciplinary talks from academics from Canada and the US. Each talk will explore an area of classical liberal ideas and will be followed by time for discussion.
We’ll be asking should you able to sell a kidney? How does the language of economics influence romantic poetry? Is the middle class declining? Should we take politics seriously?
The seminar will feature the following talks:
· Peter Jaworski (Georgetown University) – Markets without Limits: How to sell a kidney or other weird things
· Sarah Skwire (Liberty Fund) – You’re So Money: Economic Seductions
· Don Boudreaux (George Mason University) – The Myth of Middle Class Stagnation
· Jacob Levy (McGill University) - Augustine and liberty: taking politics less seriously
The seminar is open to students and faculty from all schools and disciplines as well as interested members of the community. It will run from in Arts Building, Room 150 on the McGill Campus. Each talk will be followed by time for Q&A. Lunch is included and there is no charge to attend. Those planning to attend are asked to register at http://www.liberalstudies.ca/events/liberty-seminar-montreal/.
