Brynward Bound

Bryn Mawr

On Friday I’m off to Bryn Mawr to teach in an Institute for Humane Studies seminar on Advanced Studies in the Tradition of Liberty. This’ll be my first IHS event since the past century, I believe. My topics will be “Justice and Utility,” “Intellectual Property: Pro and Con,” and “Libertarians and the Left.” The other lecturers will be Randy Barnett, Steve Davies, John Hasnas, Amy Phillips, George Selgin, and Kit Wellman; here’s a schedule. This looks like a lot of fun.

I was at an IHS event at Bryn Mawr in 1994; if I recall correctly, the main street has a Borders at one end and a Barnes & Noble at the other, so I know where I’ll be during free time. (And on the free afternoon I imagine a bunch of us will take the train into Philadelphia.)

As soon as I get back, Mises University begins!

Addendum: At the request of IHS I’ve taken down the schedule.

    I applied for it, but I’m so jealous (with 2 of my friends) that I can’t go. >;

    Welcome back to the Philly area! The whole Bryn Mawr/Haverford/Ardmore/Narberth area is beautiful, and there’s a lot to see and do there. Hope you enjoy it.

    Will IHS publish the lectures?

      I don’t think so. But most of the material is stuff the lecturers have written about elsewhere.

    Then I’ll find it.

    Roderick, I was going to ask if your lecture is recorded and online. But given what you said above, and that IHS even demanded you take down the lecture schedule–I suppose not. Sad.

    Sad, yes. Apparently, they think it advances liberty — the IHS mission — to restrict their resources to a selected elite.
